I am very much looking forward to the Passchendaele Memorial events on 30/31 July. I am lucky enough to hold tickets for the Menin Gate Service and Ypres Square event on Sunday as well as the Tyne Cot Service on Monday. I’m heading out early Sunday morning and staying four days. Cousin Spencer Parkes is commemorated on The Menin Gate even though he was killed on 13th October 1917.
