Hi all,

 

August is coming and with it my yearly outing to the Four Days of the Yzer… my 23rd!!

I've just checked the tracks for this year … not much interesting for the first two days, but i've identified a few cemeteries we're passing on the Poperinge and Ypres walking days and thought that maybe some people might need pictures.

So these are the cemeteries ON THE TRACKS… I know that some will lie only a few hundred meters away from the tracks, but on both days we're on schedule for ceremonies, so I can't add too much kilometers on them.

If you want the picture of a grave on these cemeteries, just holler:

 

Poperinge day:

  • NINE ELMS CEMETERY
  • DOZINGEM C
  • GWALIA C

Ypres Day:

  • KLEIN-VIERSTRAAT BRITISH C
  • KEMMEL N°1 FRENCH C
  • SUFFOLK C

 

EDIT:

Weather permitting and if I get there on time, I might take my bike out for a spin and drive from Poperinge to Ypres on monday morning.

Might pass following cemeteries, especially if special requests:

  • RED FARM C
  • HAGEL DUMP C
  • BRANDHOEK (the three)
  • VLAMERTINGHE NEW C
  • RAILWAY CHATEAU C
  • HOP STORE C

 

if anyone's around on monday 19th... waffle's on me!
