... checking the Visitor's Books at each cemetery to see if we can come across any evidence of the North High connection visiting the same places we have been. This was all we could do of our tour (Flanders Fields Museum in Ieper being closed on Mondays and we have visited the Menin Gate twice for the 8pm service) so we followed Bob Shaw's recommendation and headed towards Poperinge to see the Lyssenthock Cemetery.

... Car Route 1914 -18' guide of cemeteries and other WW1 sites and decided to head out and make the most of the wonderful clear weather. Our self paced guide book will eventually take us 70 km throughout the Ypres district.

There was quite violent water movement from the middle of the lock but we sat quite nicely with the one line on and the ...
... see the Last Post at the Menin Gate one more time. It was packed. It seemed that at least 3-4 schools worth of students were in town that night. The exodus was surprisingly quick, but I'd made the mistake of waiting to eat until after the ceremony and everywhere was busy. The kids weren't there... they were in all the chocolate shops.
