Rue David Military Cemetery

Fleurbaix, Pas-de-Calais, France

Fleurbaix is a village about 5km south-west of Armentieres and the cemetery lies to the south-east of the village alongside the road. Rue-David (or Rue-des-Davids) is the local name of the road running between La Croix-Marechal and La Boutillerie.
The cemetery was begun by the 2nd Royal Scots Fusiliers in December 1914 and closed to British burials in December 1917. At the Armistice it contained 220 graves but after the Armistice it was greatly enlarged by the concentration of graves from around Aubers and Fromelles.
There are now nearly 900, 1914-19 war casualties commemorated in this site with almost half of these unidentified.
