I had planned to take my father to ypres in spring 2008 to see the name of his father ( my grandfather)on the menin gate,although my father was a regular and was with b.e.f in france /belgium in 1939/40 he had no idea where his father lay , sadly though he died suddenly a few weeks back aged 94.
My grandfather died on may 25 1915 with 2 bat northumberland fusiliers at mouse trap farm, does such a place still exist? is it possible to visit? could anyone recommend an itinery?places to stay?I would be so grateful for any help however small . thankyou.
