Over many years…

… I had heard of Menin Gate.

Menin Gate is probably the most well known entrance

to the City of Ypres in Belgium.

 

Each evening at 2000 hours buglers play

the last post for the gathered crowd.

In 2017 the spectacle was supervised

by two lions on loan from…

 

Menin Gate, Ypres, Belgium

…the Australian War Memorial.

Originally the lions were donated to Australia

by the Mayor of Ypres in 1936.

Although the crowd was not as large as previous nights.

After the event those who wished

could lay a wreath in memory

of the fallen.
