Baku Memorial




Baku Memorial, Azerbaijan, can be found within the large cemetery near Parliament Building, which also houses the tomb of the unknown warrior. This will be found on high ground overlooking the bay. The memorial itself will be found in a small secluded section to the left of the Avenue des Martres. Set on a lower terrace, the Baku Memorial is some 100 metres behind the Turkish Memorial. One man of the North Irish Horse, Lieutenant R. C. Russell, is commemorated here.
