Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial

I was  heading back to Huntingdon after a day trip to Cambridge and decided to stop by an American World War II cemetery.  It’s part of a bus tour that I noticed while wandering around but I thought I’d just drive there myself to have a look.

I arrived just as the tour bus was pulling away and as luck would have it I was the only one there at the time.  The caretaker was a guy that had been working American cemeteries for perhaps several decades and knew quite a bit about this cemetery in Coton.  I ended up getting a personal tour and found the entire thing quite impressive.  For some reason I have the word Coton stuck in my memory but the place is actually called Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial.
