SIR – My wife and I were motor-caravanning in France and decided to spend a night at Noyelles-sur-mer in the Somme area. As we arrived in the village we saw a notice directing visitors to the Chinese Cemetery.
Intrigued, we discovered that it contained some 800 graves of members of a Chinese Labour Corps who had died during the First World War. All the headstones had the names of the dead in Chinese and English.
The cemetery was immaculate, tended by local people, under the auspices of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
Reading Guy Kelly’s article (“Why we must remember the Chinese Labour Corps,” Features, November 4) we were glad to know they are not entirely forgotten.
