WW1 Sites

Remembering that this was an Acient & Modern History tour we saw some true history.
Polygon Wood, Tyne Cot, The Somme Trench Museum, Pozieres, Villiers-Brettoneux, Passendale and trenches. The lovely towns of Albert, Ypres and the Menin Gate.
Did you know that every evening since 1918 the end of WW1 the "Last Post" is played at Menin Gate & wreathes are layed. That is 92 years! All the cemetaries are in perfect condition, no desecration at all. It is an indication of the appreciation of the people to those who fought to gain their freedom.
