German Military Cemetery at Berneuil (Kämpfe)
The German Military cemetery at Berneuil on the N137, about 3 miles south of Saintes. The approach to the cemetery requires care as the N137 is straight and fast at the point of the entrance and there is little warning before you have to make the turn. Kämpfe's grave is to the rear and left of the photographer. He has been buried here since March 1963, when he was moved from the Breuilaufa cemetery in the Haute-Vienne. According to the Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge (German War Graves Office) his place and date of death are respectively Cheissoux and 10th June 1944.
