BRETTEVILLE-SUR LAIZE CANADIAN WAR CEMETERY, Calvados, France XV.A.10.

 

This cemetery lies on the west side of the main road from Caen to Falaise (route N158) about 14

kilometres south of Caen and just north of the village of Cintheaux.  The village of Bretteville lies 3

kilometres south-west of the cemetery.

 

Buried here are those who died during the later stages of the battles of Normandy, the capture of

Caen and the thrust southwards (led initially by the 4th Canadian and 1st Polish Armoured Division), to

close the Falaise Gap, and thus seal off the German divisions fighting desperately to escape being

trapped west of the Seine.  Almost every unit of Canadian Corps is represented in the Cemetery.

There are now nearly 3,000, 1939-45 war casualties commemorated in this site.

AGIRA CANADIAN WAR CEMETERY, SICILY, ITALY B.B. 141

 

Agira Canadian War Cemetery lies in the Commune of Agira, Province of Enna, in the center of Sicily.

From the autostrada A19, Catania-Palermo, take the exit to Catenanuova.  Follow the autostrada A19,

Catania-Palermo, take the exit to Catenanuova.  Follow signposts to Regalbuto, then pass Regalbuto,

going in the direction of Agira.  The cemetery is then signposted about 12 km from Regalbuto.  The

cemetery is permanently open and may be visited anytime.

 

It was felt to be desirable, after the Sicilian campaign, to concentrate into one cemetery the graves of all

Canadians who fell during the campain, and the site at Agira was selected for that purpose by Canadian

officers at the beginning of September 1943.  There are now nearly 500, 1939-45 war casualties

commemorated in this site.  Of these, a small number are unidentified.  On the South side of the road from

Catania to Agira, a little less than one kilometer West of Regalbuto, stands a memorial to the officers and

men of the 2nd Battalion.  The Devonshire Regiment who were killed in the fight to capture the

neighbouring ridge.
