Last Post at the Menen Poort

Recommended Posts

Since 1928 The Last Post has been played every night under the Menin Gate, a memorial for the allied victims in the Ypres Salient during World War I. A very moving salute, that I've had the privilege of attending a few times.

Tomorrow evening, they'll be playing it for the 30.000th time.
