Ypres 2015
Earlier in the year, Ken Alker, visited Ypres whilst visiting the Flanders Area.
As we conclude the week in which we focus our attention on those who gave the lives for our freedom, he thought it appropriate to share with us all the photographs he took whilst there.

The last post is sounded there in the evening at Eight O Clock.
The Area of Flanders and the town of Ypres is well documented on the website, Click here and is worth reading about, but for a full insight to the area Ken would recommend a visit, which will give you the emotional experience too.
