  • Short Summary

    Poignant item shows World War I veterans and women marching in a remembrance service at the Menin Gate in Ypres.

  • Description

    Full titles read: '"The Army of Remembrance" - The Prince of Wales and 11,000 Pilgrims join in poignant service of homage at the Menin Gate.'

    Ypres, Belgium.

    Various shots show troops and a large crowd watching a long procession of First World War veterans and women marching along during the outdoor service at the Menin Gate. The procession seems to be 90% women; several flags are carried in the parade. Several people watch from the ruined buildings around the area.

    Note: we do not see The Prince of Wales in this story. According to an old database record, Lady Haig leads the Scottish contingent. For search purposes - World War One / World War I.
