The saint julien memorial is outside of Ieper, but easily found with a good map of the surrounding area. We rented bikes, which was a great way to find this memorial, and many others. The soldier's face shows the mood of anyone contemplating the reasons for, and the outcomes of,the Great War. Knowing that this is the site of the First gas attacks gives it such historical meaning. The "why?" of human fighting becomes an even bigger question after seeing this. Another must-see!
