we stayed at CITY LOFT IN YPRES. DIGS WERE SUPERB 5mins walk from bus/train station.we went to most of the cemeteries close to ypers and poperinge,in poperinge we went into the cell were soldiers were kept the nignt before execution and some wrote their names/number on the walls.we also went to TYNE COT CEMETERY AT ZONNEBEKE and that doesn't half bring home the futility war.
my main reason for going was to visit my gt/uncles grave at BEDFORD HOUSE CEMETERY which was only a short walk from our digs,it turned out to be very emotional for me as we were the first of his family to visit the grave in one hundred years.
we hope to go again some time but by car because being on public transport we restricted where we could visit and we didn't not go to any actual battle sites.
