Footage taken at Armistice
Armistice 2017 and attending the Remembrance Ceremony at the Menin Gate in Ypres in Belgium. As a group, we take part in the Poppy Parade with our wreaths, walking up to the Menin Gate, then take part in the service. Towards the end of the ceremony, poppy petals fall while the choir sings “O Valiant Hearts”. In attendance this year was Princess Anne and her husband Tim Lawrence.
On the eve of Armistice in Ypres, some of our group were in a bar called the Ypra Inn, as close as you could get to the Menin Gate. This year was extra special when a piper played for us ahead of the Last Post Ceremony that takes place at 8pm every evening. Look at the Menin Gate lit up in the background. There is no better place to be than in Ypres at any time of year but especially at Armistice.
