Just back from a quick day in Ypres.
An opportunity to spend some time at the Menin Gate

There are 112 names for those lost from the Royal Garrison Artillery,these being inscribed on panel 9, to the right of the north arch.
A visit was made to the Ypres Reservoir Cemetery, primarlly to visit the Knott brothers graves, where 313 Royal Artillery graves can be found, including gunner William Butler D/250 Battery from Hebburn Colliery.
