    Re: Menin Gate

    The extra info is that this group of Veterans came from the Newcastle area of England ...


    Who is the lady wearing the Black Watch blazar badge and the Red Hackle ? Is she from the Newcastle area too and that same group ? Maybe Tyneside Scottish ex service members and association members ..........

    Another two photo,s from Freddy and Anita with the message:

    <span style="font-style: italic">Another two pics from last Tuesday, I talked to this Lady and ask her where they came from because I recognised something Scottish and she said they came from Newcastle to lay a Wreath for the Black Watch she told something about a Legion in England, but the head office is in Perth she said so we were lucky again to see someone from the BW and on Wednesday they went to France to a cemetery near Arras to lay a Wreath for BW soldiers and after the ceremony the 95 y old man came to me and shake my hand while he said I hope you enjoyed it and I told him yes very much and it was nice to meet you, I said you must be one of the lucky man who came home after the War and he answer me that God was looking after him, so for us it was a nice evening, think we must go now and then to the Last Post, thanks to you we been there for the first time, don't know why we been there before, now its your turn

    many greetings from Belgium
    Anita &amp; Freddy

    A message from Freddy &amp; Anita to say that the 95 year old veteran of WW2 and Dunkirk who lay the Wreath at Menin Gate on Tuesday evening this week was born in 1914 and not 1904 !!
