The Prince of Wales's Leinster Regiment (Royal
St. Patrick’s Day Menin Gate Ypres, 17 March 2009
To be in Ieper (Ypres) on St. Patrick’s
Day and take part in the Menin Gate Last Post ceremony is something
special, more so if you have a connection with a British Army Irish
regiment. The feeling you can get as you stand within the gateway is
something that you cannot experience any where else in the world. This
is, without any doubt, the place and the time to pay homage to all the
Irish servicemen who never returned home from Flanders.
There is currently no plan to organise a coach
trip to this event.
Several members will be in
Ypres for St. Patrick's Day. If you would like to meet up with members please let us
know by Monday 9 March 2009
If you wish to meet up with fellow members do come
along to the Ypres British Legion on the evening of Sunday 15 March. If
you would like to join the group for the Menin Gate assembly on Tuesday 17 March you can get in touch and
request more information.
