Wednesday was a fabulous day – a huge thank you and a hundred Merci’s to Brigitte and Liz Millward for a fabulous day out in Belgium. By pure chance I came across the grave of Paddy Bugden – Thérèse Ingelaere Bless her – gave me a book on ANZACs there was Paddy and the details of where he was buried. A quick request to Liz and as the grave was near where we were going to Iper that very morning and we found it. I was able to place Anne’s cross on Paddy’s grave. Hooge Crater, Polygon Wood, Tyne Cot and the Last Post at the Menin Gate.
Thank you Liz and Brigitte for the most wonderful wonderful day xxx
Polygon Wood – And an interesting chat with Mark Booth who is working with CWGC planting the beautiful flowers on the graves in all the Commonwealth Cemeteries.. A lot of planning and work goes into the selection of the plants and design of the planting. It is interesting to learn about something which I hadn’t given much thought to before – except to admire the stunning blooms of the flowers
The most amazing collection of Trench Art at Hooge Crater Belgium
