Hi Pals,

I need to get a wreath in Ieper on Friday 6th for the Menin Gate ceremony at 8pm.

I see the Ramparts Museum is closed tonight ( where the RBL are temporarily located)

Anyone around who can give me a heads up?

I'm staying in the Novotel and will check this site later tonight (5th)

Many thanks

In the past I've always been able to buy a wreath from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission offices in Elverdingsestraat (Street with St. George's Memorial Church on the corner). Walk down there, past the prison and the CWGC offices are on the right.

Hello,

To my knowledge you can obtain a poppy wreath in the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 as well. this is situated in the centre of Zonnebeke but well worth the travel for the museum alone.
