Last week I visited Ypres and Diksmuide with my dad and brother, we went to some museums and trenches, and I thought some of you might enjoy the pictures.
First of, the Trench of Death
Not sure why some aren't oriented properly, they are fine on my pc
Forgot to add, it was nicknamed like that because the whistling it made before impact sounded like a squeeling pig
This thread pleases me greatly. Thank you for posting! I'm kind of envious!
Glad at least someone likes it, heh. It was very interesting to me too, living in Belgium the Wars have been part of a lot of history lessons in school, but up until now most what I knew was about WWII.
It was also quite shocking to actually see all those places, it really puts it in perspective, to see how terrible it all was.
And at the end of the day, the Menin Gate, with the Last Post. Seeing all those names there, followed by the tribute, was really impressive.
