The UN Memorial Cemetery, part 2

Here are some more photos from the UN Memorial Cemetery.   Here is the French memorial. 

There are some more memorials, such as the Commonwealth nations memorial, Turkish memorials, the Australian memorial, and the Canadian memorial. 

The memorial wall lists the names of all the dead from the UN member states who fought on the side of the Republic of Korea during the war.  There is another monument, this one featuring the calligraphy of former Korean president Park Chung-hee.
