One of the highlights was meeting our friends in the Dutch school. We found out about Holland being freed from German occupation at the Wings of Liberation Museum.

Finally on our return journey we visited Ypes to pay our respects at the Essex Farm and Langemark Cemeteries and the Menin Gate. We laid wreaths and said prayers for all those who had died and for peace in world today.
