The Missing of The Salient. The Menin Gate. Ypres. BE

Every evening since 1928 the ceremony of The Last Post has been observed under the archway of The Menin Gate. It was only interrupted by occupation by the Germans 1940-44.

The first call of The Last Post in 1944 took place even as the Germans still occupied the town but were preparing to pull out.
