During the winter of 1939-1940 British troops were in a sector of the Saar not far from Metz, engaged in patrol and raiding activities. The 51st (Highland) Division relieved the French 7th Division, in this area, in May 1940. Metz was liberated by American troops in November, 1944.
There are now nearly 100, 1914-18 and over 30, 1939-45 war casualties commemorated on this French War Cemetery lying next to Metz Communal Cemetery.
