Beny sur mer cemetery

Canadian Military Cemetery


The largest Canadian war grave cemetery is situated inland on the road from Caen to Sées at Cintheaux, Bretteville-sur-Laize; this is on the infamous route taken by the retreating German troops, the "Corridor of Death" from Caen to Falaise. Almost every unit of the 2nd Corps is represented here. There are 2,793 Canadian soldiers buried in the cemetery, 91 of them unknown. With them lie 79 members of the R.C.A.F.
