St. Brieuc is the
chief town and the seat of the Prefecture of the Department of the Cotes-d'Armor.
The town lies 64 kilometres west of Dinard (Ille et Vilaine).
The cemetery is 2 kilometres from the railway station, between the road to
Brest and the road to the local aerodrome.
From the Prefecture, follow the Rue de la Corderie onto the Rue J Nicolas
and then into Rue Pinot where the cemetery entrance will be found on the
right hand side.
The great majority of the sailors buried at St. Brieuc Western Communal
Cemetery lost their lives when H.M.S. Charybdis was sunk off the Bord de la
Rance in October 1943.
There are now over 90, 1939-45 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of
these, over a third are unidentified.
