Westerstede - visit to the cemetery

Next on our agenda was a visit to the cemetery in Westerstede to see some of the family memorials. Heiko (Native German) and David (Native English) turned out to be the best translators to bridge the unfortunate language barriers. David loves learning languages and took advantage of the year living in Dresden to become fairly fluent. David said that events like this were fun in that he really would improve his language skills by hearing and translating for everyone. Heiko and David were very popular as they had the best command of both languages.

I am currently reading a book on WWI (A World Undone - The story of the Great War 1914 - 1918) and noticed this Memorial to the solders who died in the great war:
