In 2009 our students took part in the Menin Gate Ceremony. Singing and laying a wreath to the ANZACS listed on the Memorial was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the students who will always remember the wonderful opportunity they were given by the Association.

I attended with members of my son's school, who were on a remembrance tour. A very moving ceremony. Our thanks to the Association, who have kept these men's mory alive.

This year Queen Elizabeth's Grammar in Horncastle made its 13th and final annual pilgrimage to Belgium to commemorate old boys of the school, as well has students relatives that fell in the Great War. As part of this we participated in the Last Post ceremony, which this year we attended on the 29th of March. This year Archie read the Exhortation, Charlotte lay the wreath and Lucy and Dominic escorted. It was a great honour to participate in the ceremony and although I will not be going to Belgium again with QEGS I will return to Belgium to remember those whe fell in The Great War. We Will Remember Them.

We had the privilege to watch the ceremony twice, on 12/03/10 and again on 13/03/10. This was the most memorable and moving part of our trip to the Ypres Salient and the Somme Battlefield. We congratulate the Association for providing a daily reminder to those who witness the ceremony of what an enormous sacrifice that Britain and her Commonwealth experienced during the Great War. We will never, ever forget it. Thank you.

I like to honour the people, and the Last Post Association for the daily discipline they have shown us hosting the ceremony in Ypres at 8 pm remembering all our brave men and women and all victims of the wars of the world.

I was very proud to be asked to lay a wreath at the Last Post - Special ceremony 11/11/2009 at 11.00. I was in Belgium as part of a school war graves trip and I wore my scout uniform when laying the wreath as I missed our own rememberance service in the UK.
A lady at the Menin gate told me so much about the medals people were wearing. I thought about a member of my own family who died in world war 1. It was quite shocking to see the number of names on the gate and at Thiepval. A wreath was also laid on a grave of a former pupil at our school. I will never forget this trip and the number of people who have given their lives in war.

Well done to all involved in the Last Post Association for organising the various events for Armistice Week last week. I was proud to be an Irish man standing at the Menin Gate at last week's ceremonies in tribute and in memory to my great-grandfather and the thousands who, like him, are named on the Menin Gate. As I stood there in tribute, I remembered the words of the Irish Nobel Laureate, Seamus Heaney: "They buried us without shroud or coffin, And in August the barley grew up out of the grave". May all those buried in Flanders Fields rest in peace.

I found being a guard of Honour at the Menin Gate ceremony on the 8th of November 2009 a very moving expierence and I shall never forget.
