Last Post Ceremony

The 'Last Post' was first sounded in 1928 under the arches of The Menin Gate and each evening for a few brief moments, the modern world comes to a stop, the crowd is hushed and stillness descends over the memorial as the Last Post ceremony takes us back in time, as we pause to remember our dead. The Last Post, traditionally the last salute to the Fallen Warrior, is played in memory of the soldiers of the then British Empire and Allied Forces who fell in the Ypres Salient.
