Up early this morning to board the Eurostar for Lille.
Picked up a car and here we are in Ieper (Ypres)
Had our first meal and then we were off to see what we came here for.
I have found this very moving today, so prepare yourselves.
I am not sure why this really gets to me.
Maybe it's because I have 3 sons in their early 20's that it seems personal.
My grandfather and his brothers survived the Western Front.
The Menin Gate, marking 55,000 soldiers never found.
