Blue Knights Belgium IX and VII

5TH Flanders Fields Rally

WW 1 Armistice Centenary Edition

May 2018

A brilliant turnout by Blue Knights England 2 for the Flanders Field Rally which was attended by 300 plus Blue Knights from around the world . Once we arrived at Flanders peace village we were greeted by our hosts Belgium IX and VII. We all settled into our rooms before we were back on our bikes for our next destination, Ypres and to the Menin Gate for the last post, which I must say was very moving. A wreath was laid by 4 members of the Blue Knights, there was also a brass band playing and a bag piper.If you’ve never been to the Menin Gate it’s a must, they play the last post every night at 8pm 365 days a year.

Back at the peace village we all got ready for the nights festivities which meant lots of eating and dancing that went on to the early hours of the morning

After the fun night which was had by all there was a ride out to Tyne Cot cemetery , some of our members had never been to the many cemeteries  in Belgium and they found it very moving.

After an emotional ride out we descended back to the peace village for another night of fun.

A very big thank you to our hosts Belgium Blue Knights

A Fantastic weekend
