Menin Gate Lions take pride of place in Ieper once more
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is set to receive the famous Menin Gate stone lions, before they go back on display at Ieper later this month.
After an enforced absence of more than 12 years, staff from the Commission have made a historic return to Iraq.
Today (15 June) marks 100 years since Edward Harold Brittain – the brother of writer and Voluntary Aid Detachment (V.A.D.) nurse Vera Brittain – was killed in action while serving on the Italian Front.
