Posted by Jean-Yves on Nov 15, 2020

Bray-sur-Somme fell into German hands in March 1918, but it was retaken by the 40th Australian Battalion on the following 24 August. Bray Hill British Cemetery was made on 31 August 1918, by the 58th (London) Division, which had taken part in the advance from Corbie.

The original cemetery (now part of Plot I) contained 41 graves but was increased after the Armistice when graves were brought in from the battlefields of March and August 1918, between Bray and Fricourt. (Source: Commonwealth War Graves Commission)
