Join us on this one day trip and pay tribute to all the great men, Britain’s missing soldiers and officers. Upon departure from the meeting point the road will take us straight to a German Cemetery from which point you`ll proceed to the WW1 trenches and the Essex Farm Cemetery. This is where John McCrae, deeply sadden by his friend burial at the site, wrote the famous poem In Flanders Fields.
Afterwords we`ll see the Brooding Soldier, a statue standing proud and tall over Langemark in honor of the Canadian resistance during the gas attack inflected by Germans in 1915. This is the perfect place to take a moment and pay your respects. After lunch the tour will lead to the Tyne Cot Cemetery, the largest Commonwealth cemetery in the world and Hill 60 or Hill 62.
We also scheduled a stop at the Flanders Fields Museum where you`ll discover the stories behind the grueling tranche war. As a conclusion to this full day trip we`ll attend the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate.
