In Flanders’ fields, the war was staged
The trench lines dug, the barbed wire caged
At Ypres each day
The Last Post is played
To honor the missing, at Menin Gate
Every evening since 1928 the Last Post has been played under the Menin Gate Memorial in Ypres at 8 o’clock sharp. Since then it has been played over 30,000 times.
Below is Tyne Cot Cemetary, where 11,956 soldiers are buried, of which 8,369 are unnamed.
