  Last Post on trumpets of the Ieper fire brigade
by Pavlik_NL
 
 

The Last Post is a military trumpet tune that shows the end of the day in military camps. The ceremony is a beautiful sign and a speaker will name all regiments that lost men in the fierce battles between 1914 and 1918 of which many were burried without a name on their grave. These missing are here, surrounding you on the echoing walls of the Menin Gate. The whole is breathtaking and will guarantee a lumb in your throat and a tear in your eyes. People are silent here, something that doesn't happen that often now-a-days. May those who fell in the Great War, never be forgotten and their names live forever more.
