Mont Huon Military Cemetery, Seine-Maritime, France
VIII. K. 7B..
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.
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,
