... McCrae, Medical Officer, Canadian Artillery. Sadly John died of illness in late January 1918z The bunker where it is believed he may have written the poem is preserved near the memorial. While walking through the Commonwealth cemetery nearby (you are never far from one here) Greg found a headstone where a lot of crosses and some teddy bears had been placed. Then he saw why, the soldier buried there was 15 years old when killed. One of the many who had lied about his age. ...
... videotaped the ceremony thank goodness! I will share with you later. The Menin Gate - is a memorial to all British and commonwealth soldiers (except New Zealand and Newfoundland) that have no known grave - over 55,000!!! The ceremony has taken place every evening at 8pm since 1927 - except during German occupation during WWII. It was standing room only at the ceremony this evening Looong day - looking forward to bed ...
... when she noticed a sign to a memorial for Hill 60 and the 1st Australian Tunneling Company, Greg's Grandfather's (on his Mum's side) unit during WW1. So we went for a look. 1 ATC played a significant role in this battle and many of them, along with British and Germans solders are permanently buried under the hill where they were trapped by cave-ins caused by explosions or accidents while tunneling. Lucky for the Walker/Jenkins families Greg's Granddad, William (Bill) ...
... enjoyed. We left church and headed up to what they call mountains (not quiet mountains) but a small hill to a little cabin/ cottage. We met other Belgian church members and Christoff brought his guitar we sang songs and had hot chocolate and pastries. The kids were in the rain playing in the trees and it was all a picture. Just a glimpse of heaven you could say; a blessed sabbath and many spiritual lessons ...
In a final irony, the British gave up this hard fought ridge, not long after in March 1918, in a desperate attempt to shorten their line and stop the German advance during their big and successful spring offensive.

This hotel is a better option between a hostel and a hotel. The difference is that you have a room for yourself, but the rest of the commodities you'll have to share with the other guests.
If you book one room online (for 1,2 or 3 ppl) will cost you 24 euro/night/room!!!! If you go at the reception and take a room, then the price will be 39 euro for the same room.
Another mention here, if you're looking for a cheap place to sleep, then this is perfect, but only if you're traveling by car.
