Le Treport is a small seaport in the Department of the Seine-Maritime, 25 kilometres north-east of Dieppe. The MONT HUON MILITARY CEMETERY is 1.5 kilometres south of the town. Go towards the centre of Le Treport and then follow the Littoral/Dieppe sign. The Cemetery stands on the right of a fork road on D940.

Additional Information:
During the First World War, Le Treport was an important hospital centre and by July 1916, the town contained three general hospitals (the 3rd, 16th and 2nd Canadian), No.3 Convalescent Depot and Lady Murray's B.R.C.S. Hospital. The 7th Canadian, 47th and 16th USA General Hospitals arrived later, but all of the hospitals had closed by March 1919. As the original military cemetery at Le Treport filled, it became necessary to use the new site at Mont Huon. There are now 2,128 Commonwealth burials of the First World War in the cemetery and seven from the Second World War. The cemetery also contains more than 200 German war graves. The cemetery was designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield.

Commemorated on Page 491 of the First World War Book of Remembrance. The Book of Remembrance is in the Memorial Chamber, which occupies the second level of the Peace Tower in the Houses of Parliament, Ottawa.
