The annual Harrodian trip to Ypres in Belgium with the 13s had particular significance this year as we marked the centenary of the start of World War One.

The tour company GESTA delivered an interactive presentation to all the 13s on life on the Western Front month before the trip.  As part of the fascinating talk, pupils learnt how the Front was created and the strategic significant of Ypres as a town that had to be held, at all costs.  Pupils were then able to see some key landmarks of the First World War and the remnants of the destruction when they visited Ypres on a day trip. The itinerary included visits to the Menin Gate, the preserved trenches at Sanctuary Wood, Tyne Cot Cemetery and a number of other World War One sties.  At Tyne Cot the group held their annual reading of In Flanders Field by John McCrae, and laid a wreath on behalf of the Harrodian.  They also paid their respects at the German cemetery at Langemark.
