Explore Menin Gate, British Soldier, and more!

The Menin Gate, Ypres Belgium. Remembering the dead of the first world war. Every night at 8pm there is 'The last post', every day all year long. The trumpets bring a tribute to the dead of WWI. I've heard it countless times and I have past under the Menin Gate even more. But it still gives me goosebumps. There are over 54 896 names on these walls, deceased british soldiers with no (known) grave. The Menin gate was build in 1927 and is a part of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

Every night at 8pm, rain, hail or snow...2 people or 2,000; The Last post is played at Menin Gate, Ypres.  You cannot explain the feeling that you have standing under here.

Menin Gate, Ypres: to see so many names of those who lost their lives is a humbling experience, to have the honour of playing here is an experience I cherish and one I will never forget.

It was amazing and sad to see the Last Post ceremony that happens here every single night. Was amazing that 3 of my friends on the trip with me were given the opportunity to lay a wreath in the ceremony on behalf of our school and town.
