Edegem, Belgium - 30 000th Last Post Ceremony 9 July 2015.


The Menin Gate in Ieper shows the names of 54,897 soldiers of the British Commonwealth who perished in the Great War and whose remains were never recovered. The daily Last Post is a tribute to them and to all those that fell in war.


The tradition was installed in 1928 by the Last Post Association. Since then, the sound of bugles could be heard every evening under Menin Gate, only to be interrupted by the Second World War between 1940-1944.
