Saint-Martin-de-Fugères War Memorial - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-D2-14
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

This war memorial appeared to be the centre-piece and highlight of the commune of Saint-Martin-de-Fugères in the Haute-Loire department in the region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes in southern France. I don't recall seeing many war memorials unlike here in Australia where most towns have one.

Day 2 of 12 - Le Monastier-sur-Gazeille to Le Bouchet-Saint-Nicolas: Walking the Chemin de Stevenson (GR 70 Robert Louis Stevenson Trail) in the south of France.

Dutch - Cemetery at Bremen - WWII
A place in a park landscape, but walled in.
It is unique in its appearance, as the gravestones were made of light-coloured stone, which gives a decidedly different feeling apart from the gloomy WWII graveyards around
From spring till autumn it is well kept and they have fresh flowers all the time
This graveyard beckons to make you come back throughout the year

Carrefour Guy Cubizolle - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-D7-19
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

This memorial to a Forrester, Guy Cubizolle, marks the highest point (1,413m) of the GR 70 Robert Louis Stevenson Trail as we enter the Cévennes mountains for the first time.

It is not the actual summit, which can be reached by following a GR de pays detour of about 2.4 km to the west. We did not complete the summit as Madame Anne was still walking in pain.

Day 7 of 12 – Chasserades to Le Bleymard: Walking the Chemin de Stevenson (GR 70 Robert Louis Stevenson Trail) in the south of France.

Henri Rouvière, Professor of Anatomy and Embryology – Chemin de Stevenson-2018-D8_01
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

A memorial to Professor Rouvière who was a native of Le Bleymard and who became well known for his work and publications including his exhaustive study involving the delineation and classification of human lymph nodes and their associated drainage region.

The eponymous "node of Rouvière" (sometimes called "Rouvière node") features his name; this node is the most superior of the lateral group of the retropharyngeal lymph nodes and is found at the base of the skull.

Day 8 of 12 – Le Bleymard to Le Pont de Montvert: Walking the Chemin de Stevenson (GR 70 Robert Louis Stevenson Trail) in the south of France.
