The Menin Gate 26.12.14

The Last Post, the traditional salute to the fallen victims of war, is played in honour of the memory of the dead and missing of the First World War at The Menin Gate Memorial in Ypres, Belgium every night of the year.

This Christmas,100 years after the 1914 truce, on Boxing Day 2014, this daily act of perpetual homage was performed in front of our All Together Now statue in tribute to those men and boys.

The sculpture, made and transported by ordinary people is especially dedicated in this gesture to those without graves, but whom we will never forget and whose suffering and deaths might still earn a lasting peace for all our souls.
