Hello All

I am off with a Leger Battlefield tour on Mon 12th Sept to Friday 17th Sept staying at the Novotel Hotel in Ypres.

I have overlooked the purchase of poppies and the British Legion crosses to take with me to place at several graves that I intend to visit during our stay.

Does anyone know of a place in Ypres ( Hooge Crater Museum possibly?) where I can purchase these items?

Any help much appreciated.

Regards,

Bob Norman.

would it be interesting that the MMP17 (the museum at zonnebeke) shoudl have some crosses and reefs in stock???

Maybe the museum will do that. It is close to Tyne Cot.

But of course the war graves commision is just at Ypres...

Bob; you can also get them from the Shell Hole round the corner from the Hotel. I am presuming you are on the 1915 tour, so look forward to meeting you.

Many thanks for the information.
