5 things to do in Flanders Fields in autumn
1. Attend the Last Post ceremony
The volunteers buglers from the local fire brigade have been playing the Last Post every evening since 1928 (except during WWII), day after day, week in week out, to underline the importance of keeping the memory alive of those who fell during the Great War. Sun or rain, nothing can stop the Last Post Association from performing their tribute to the fallen.
2. Polygon Wood
3. Women in the war
4. Hill 62
Watch the trees lining Canadalaan – ‘Maple Avenue’- turn vivid shades of yellow, orange and red. The road, which was planted with maple trees after the war as a mark of respect for the Canadian sacrifice, will lead you up to the Canadian War Memorial Sanctuary Wood.
