Military Monday

Are you planning a visit to the First World War battlefields in Belgium? The most memorable part of my visit was the Menin Gate Memorial at Ypres, with the names of 54,588  inscribed, and the 8 pm Last Post ceremony.

To avoid disappointment, be aware of the news from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission that the memorial will be restored from early next year in a multi-year project. While the memorial will be inaccessible, the 8 pm ceremony will continue at a nearby location.
