Commonwealth War Cemetery near Trincomalee, 2004
Due to its large natural harbour, for many years Trincomalee in north eastern Sri Lanka was an important Royal Naval base. In spite of the subsequent long, brutal civil war, the large Commonwealth War Cemetery nearby is still carefully tended. Being on slightly higher ground, it survived the 2004 Asian Tsunami.
