Below are a selection of photos from a recent tour of the WW1 Battlefield in Belgium. All photos were taken using a Nikon D3300 and iPhone 6. I will add more information on the trip later on but if you have any questions then please ask below.
The Menin gate contains the names of all soldiers whose remains have not been found in the area following the Battle of Ypres. On our second day in the area the local news reported that 3 bodies had been found, 100 years on.
The museum contains thousands or artefacts from WW1, it occupies the old cloth hall which burnt down in the Ypres Salient.
In the ground between my camera and the statues in the background lie 20,000 bodies. The German government decided that they only wanted 4 cemetery’s in Belgium after the war which resulted in large mass graves.
