  • Description

    Item title reads: "The Great Pilgrimage of love. Mothers from every part of Britain tread the path… where once their dear ones trod - to the Menin Gate.. to place their tributes on the gate of a million memories."

    Ypres, Belgium

    Large procession of men and women make their way along a street beside buildings with flags at half mast. C/U of the arch with the names of fallen soldiers inscribed on a wall behind. People file slowly up the steps, and women lay flowers. Further shot of the inscriptions. A man and women tie messages to wreaths, and a woman turns to camera wearing medals.

    Note: This could be the missing sequence for item G1418 - The Menin Gate.
