Visit to Margraten

A few weekends ago I dropped into Margraten to visit PFC H.L. Hooper. It was a few days after the heavy snowfall here in the Netherlands that left us with a 10cm thick pack of snow. I cannot tell you how in awe I was to walk into the cemetery area with more than 8000 crosses in the quite empty snow covered field. It was so still, as it only can be after snow as fallen... I was alone, no one else in the entire cemetery.
