Uckfield Concert Brass was honoured to take part in the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate in Ypres this evening.
Several hundred people heard the band play an arrangement of the hymn The Day Thou Gavest Lord Is Ended and Edward Elgar’s Nimrod.
George Ball laid a wreath on behalf of the band. Rob Morris, father of Musical Director, Nick, and grandfather of cornet player, Lottie, laid a wreath on behalf of his family.
The Menin Gate remembers British and Commonwealth soldiers who were killed around Ypres in World War 1 and whose graves are unknown. The daily ceremony is organised by the Last Post Association.
