Each time we have been to Ypres we have attended the Last Post ceremony at Menin Gate. This year we had the honour of laying a wreath during one of the ceremonies held every evening at 8pm. It was a very moving occasion. The procedure was outlined to us very briefly but we copied the people in front of us - ladies from the British Legion. The only down side was that some people wore really casual clothing (shorts and denims) and to me this is not showing due respect to the WW1 dead. Another fabulous experience in Ypres.
