Some Thoughts On The Battlefields Visit

Joe: My best bit was placing the wreath at the Menin Gate. It made me feel proud and made me feel like I was a part of the ceremony. I have enjoyed the trip very much.

Claudia: I liked it when I got to go to my great, great grandad’s grave. It was good because it was special as I was the first person to visit the grave from my family.

Alec: I enjoyed visiting my great great uncle’s memorial at Tyne Cot. to was interesting but shocking to see the huge amount of graves in such small place.

It was very interesting to visit the cemeteries and memorials. The numbers of graves was overwhelming – it was hard to put the numbers into proportion.

Cameron: When I got to put the wreath on the Menin Gate, it was amazing because it was so big – it felt very serious. I was proud, and proud of myself for doing it.

Anthony: Tyne Cot was the cemetary that meant the most to me. The sheer immensity and scale of the place.
