Barney09 Posted 12 December , 2017 Share Posted 12 December , 2017 I am visiting Belgium this weekend to pay my respects to my Great Uncle Private 49842, Herbert William Dunn of the Durham Light Infantry. He was killed in action on 16 December 1917 and is now buried in Poellkapelle British War Cemetery. I am staying in Ypres and would like to visit all of the “Must Do/See” locations within a 20 radius of Ypres town. Can anyone provide me with a suitable self-drive itinerary to enable me to make the most of my visit. I have the location of where his body was found between Goudberg Copse and Virile farm. I would also like to see Hellfire Corner, a typical “WW1 trench system, Tyne Cott Cemetery and any other noteworthy locations. Unfortunately, I understand many the local museums close on my day of arrival for the Christmas period! Any ideas, suggestions and maps etc… would be greatly apprieciated.
