I must see for everyone and amazing to see that the people of Ieper continue the last post each and every day.

A truly moving experience.

As part of our tour we visited the Men in gate and last post. Very busy so go early. Very moving ceremony held at 8pm each night one on the list of things to do.

The last post ceremony is a reverently special experience and one that I have been to almost ten times now a s I never tire of how poignant it is to remember the fallen in the fields outside Ypres.

Very busy at weekends but is extra special when a military band is playing. Get there by 7.30 or no chance to get under the memorial for Last Post.

Had the privilege of being present last weekend and was totally amazed by total respect of young and old alike. We had been told to be there by 7.00pm to get a good spot. the wait was totally worth it.
We had been at Menai Gate earlier in the day and seeing all the names on the gate was truly humbling, site is well look after and the gardens and views of the town are good.
