Details

These two are 1915 WW1 memorials and the touch each other, the reason for this is that they possibly were or became very good friends and they both died very close together. Its a touching thing that happens in many war graves. A lovely touch and if you visit a CWGC cemetery, look out for friends.

Hôtel Trinion.

Details

In 1880 a company conceived the idea of a housing estate on the plain of MONT-HUON and La Treport Military Cemetery it DOMAINE DU TRÉPORT-TERRASSES . A huge, magnificent Hôtel called le Trinion was built and completed in 1913 (Henry SAUVAGE et Charles SARAZIN, the architects and conceivers of la Samaritaine department-stores in PARIS). A luxury Hôtel with 300 bedrooms was to attract the clientele belonging to the rich middle-class and compete with the sea-side resort of Paris-plage. A golf-course and a big garden were laid out but the expected crowds didn't come Consequently the housing-estate wasn't built and WW1 ruined this big plan. It was transformed into a British military hospital during the Grande Guerre and sheltered the soldiers wounded in WW1. After the war. they had to give up their plans and the abandoned estate was used as a camping-site and then became working-class gardens. In 1942, the German army blew it up, pretending it was a landmark to help the allied air-force. The only vestige left is the perron, leading up steps to the first terrace.
