These images taken by myself in Ypres:-

The Ypres War Victims Monument is dedicated to 155 named civilian and military victims from Ypres who died as a result of the 1914-1918 war. There are also 21 names on two plaques dedicated to the later victims who died during the Second World War when Ypres was occupied by German Forces from 1940-1945.

The monument was unveiled in a ceremony on Sunday 27th June 1926.

Night shot taken in September - a little spooky.

It is located in the street at the railway station end of the Cloth Hall (Larken Halle).

The ANZAC Day March in Ypres goes from Menin Gate down to this Memorial.

I have seen it plenty of times however, your photographs have inspired me to go down and study it in more detail.

Well done.

Regards, Peter
