Battlefields Day 2 (Really only 2? Are you sure?)

September 21, 2012

History teacher at work

Just a brief post I am afraid as not much time. Another great packed day today, travelling down to the Somme area, we visited Vimy Ridge, the Lochnager crater, Thiepval and Beaumont Hamel. We returned to the hotel with just time to freshen up and have supper before heading in to Ypres to take part in the nightly Remembrance Service at the Menin Gate. Four Ballard students were able to lay a wreath as part of the ceremony which has taken place every night siince it started in 1927.

Better get down for the evening entertainment now – after bowling, football, tabletennis and basketball last night, we’re in for some real calorie burning tonight at the disco!
