Off To Flanders

Our annual pilgrimage to the battlefields of Flanders is about to begin. It’s a busy year for my team of battlefield guides, as we have eleven coaches going to Ypres for 11 November. The city is likely to be very busy as well, especially given all the publicity on BBC News this week, with the excellent reports from the battlefields given by Robert Hall.

Personally I always like to have a few quiet moments as the minutes tick towards 11.00am. I usually find some quiet cemetery, or corner in Ypres, and that’s where I’ll be this year, as we mark ninety years since the end of the Great War.
