Ieper (or Ypres) was the diamond on the crown of the British during World War I (1914-1918). They had decided that Ieper was not to be conquerered, and so it wasn't. The town was totally destroyed and has been rebuilt after the war: the oldest buildings were erected in the 1920's.

    Thanks for a glimpse into much of what we missed in Ieper but sometimes a higher calling takes precedence and you are quite right we were very lucky to have Caro steering our ship that day!

    Great page Jos! Must be impressive and emotional at the same time to see all these war memorials.
