Subject: RE: BS: Ypres 90 years on
My wife and I went about five years ago to Bruges and also got on a small tour bus; the tour guide was excellent. We found her great uncle's name on the Menin Gates. We went to Hill 60 where another great uncle lost one of his legs. (we couldn't find it ;-( )
Without doubt a very moving place to go and every school should sent their kids there at least once.
I would also recommend Sebastian Faulk's 'Birdsong'. Great book.
