Together Forever
Three Burnley Lads Buried side by side

In Tyne Cot Military Cemetery, Belgium are the graves of three Burnley Soldiers
of the East Lancashire Regiment who were all killed on the 3rd December 1917 when a shell
fell on their dugout.
There is no space between the gravestones, indicating that they were buried together
possibly in the same shell hole.
