05/05/2015 Drive to Ypres, In Flanders Fields Museum. Day three.

Maximum temperature 18C, minimum 15C at Ypres. Massive storm midday and talk of winds up to 100 km/h.  It was difficult to stand still to take photos!
The storm on arrival at Ypres.

Market square Ypres.  The sun came out but the wind was terrible !

In Flanders Fields Museum.

Tobacco from Rhodesians to soldiers of the king.

Menin Gate. Memorial to 55,000 missing men on the Ypres front line.

  1. The cathedral shot is stunning Diane. The market square looks lovely too, although quite deceiving as there is no impression of the severe wind! Hope it dries up for you.

    1. Craig the wind was incredible and the same today. It is amazing the whole town was demolished in the war and it has been completely been rebuilt almost as it was before. Diane
