Ypres visit, Belgium, Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate

This is the famous Last Post Ceremony, which is undertaken every evening at dusk at the Menin Gate in Ypres. The town's Fire-Brigade has conducted this wonderful tribute to the fallen since the early 1920s. Our school along with Matthew Arnold, Holy Family, St. Charles & St. Nicholas were privileged to attend. 50 children in all (10 from each school) represented our area and our City brilliantly and were true ambassadors for Liverpool. The video shows the Fire-Brigade conducting the ceremony and wreaths laid, including wreaths laid by our children
