Mrs Ice Tiger & I have decided to be civilised this year. No more arriving in Ypres at 05:00 on the 11th & grabbing 40 winks in the car before a coffee or 3 & claiming our place at the Gate by 08:30. This year we are having a relaxing crossing & staying in Ypres on the 10th as well as the 11th!

This leads me to ask if there are any events of note on the 10th November, either in or around Ypres?

All suggestions welcome

Passchendaele Commemorations - torchlight procession to and from Crest Farm.

If you leave after the speeches etc you can get to the Menin Gate for 8 pm.

Are you at the Ariane on the 10th?

Thanks Tony for the speedy reply

Andy,

Passchendaele from Main Square to Crest Farm for 1800 hours; music, remembrance, speeches, trorchlight procession to Main Square etc.

As you are at the Ariane for two nights we stand a chance of bumping in to one another this time. Will be at the Menin Gate on the 10th.

Any chance of either of you being under the Gate on the 12th?

Alan Tucker and i will be there, with about 85 pupils and teachers.

Would be great to meet some more Forum pals...

Sorry Bruce; great as it would be to meet up with your good self & Alan, we're on the boat home on the evening of the 12th. Not sure about our bushy tailed friend though; he may be around.

I don't suppose that you will be in Ypres on the 10th/11th?

Of course, the Ariane is such a fine place, and like many on the forum been going there for years.

Maybe see you in the bar.
