Remembering Passchendaele

On 31 July 1917, 103 years ago, British forces launched the 3rd Ypres Offensive against the German Army in Belgian Flanders.

Better known today as Passchendaele, the fighting raged for 104 days. Hundreds of thousands of service personnel on both sides became casualties. The cemeteries and memorials of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission at Ypres (today Ieper) are a lasting reminder of the men and women who gave their lives.
