Remembrance Day-Ieper

A couple of years ago Remembrance Day fell on the Sunday and we had tickets for the ceremonies in and around Ieper in Flanders. Unfortunately it coincided with the mother-in-law being maltreated in the NHS system and we had to cancel.

This year I will actually be in Flanders for the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month but will be on Eurostar on Remembrance Sunday. The Last Post is always incredibly moving under the Menin Gate, I suspect a lump in the throat may become a bit more on the 11th day of the 11th month.

Remember them all with pride, Greg. So many gave so much to be betrayed by Heath and all the political shower since who have just given everything away that these brave souls gave their lives for.
