Memorial de la Porte de Menin

Military cemetery

During the Great War, hundreds of thousands of Allied Troops passed through the Menin Gate in the ramparts of Ypres on their way to the front. Each evening at 8 o'clock since 1928 the Last Post has been played at the foot of the Ypres Memorial in tribute to the 55,000 soldiers of the British Empire who fell on the battlefields of the Ypres Salient.
