Toronto Avenue is the only all-Australian cemetery in Belgium, and one of only two on the entire Western Front. In Toronto Avenue Cemetery are the graves of 78 World War I soldiers, two of them unidentified. They stand in three rows, most of them joined together signifying that this is a mass grave. On occasions, the Menin Gate buglers come to sound out those the mournful notes of the Last Post above this little group of Australians hidden in Ploegsteert Wood.
