Muslim burial ground

I've blipped the burial ground previously but it didn't look like this. This is the culmination of a marvellous restoration project.

The site was created originally for Muslims who died from their wounds after being brought from the battlefields in France and Belgium. But it was vandalised in the 1960s and the graves were moved to nearby Brookwood cemetery.

Today it's been restored as a fitting memorial for those men who fought and gave their lives in two world wars that had little or anything to do with their homeland. I wonder what Donald Trump would make of this place?
