Photograph of the French cemetery near Sevastopol. There are a number of stone headstones with their inscriptions visible. To the left there is a grave surrounded by a wrought iron fence. There are low stone walls between the graves and a taller one behind. Hills can be seen in the distance. The French, like the British, created a number of cemeteries where regiments had camped during the Siege of Sevastopol.
