Remembrance Day 2011

15 November 2011

Remembrance Day 2011 was marked at Commission cemeteries and memorials around the world.  In Belgium, events at the Menin Gate and Tyne Cot Cemetery were held.

They are two of the Commission's most iconic places - Tyne Cot Cemetery is the Commission's largest, whilst the Menin Gate in nearby Ieper hosts the nightly Last Post ceremony.  This year saw special commemorative events taking place at both places to mark Remembrance Day.
