Very moving ceremony hale each evening to remember those with no known grave. The involvement of young cadets is very moving. Keeping this alive is vital, lest we should the cost of wars.

The Last Post bugle call and wreath laying ceremony at 8pm each evening is a must do on a visit to Ypres. Probably sensible to make reservations for dinner as there is a bit of a stampede towards the square afterwards.

As the Poles regained Ypres the Last Post began again, despite heavy fighting. It's a fascinating and moving story I highly recommend that you have a look at the available information.
