Visited the Plug-street (Ploegsteert) memorial eralier in the year with a group of friends. One of my friends had a relative listed on one of the panels so the visit had special significance. Worth also visiting the adjoining cemeteries to pay respect.

Happen to be staying in Armentieres and this was one of the first cemeteries we stopped at. Being able to be part of the service was moving and something we would not have missed. Cafe across the road for refreshments.

A most splendid memorial to see. Well looked after, clean and tidy. I still don't know why, at the entrance, one lion is showing its teeth and the other does not? We were lucky enough to see the once a month parade and memorial service....More
