History pupils at the Menin Gate in Ypres, Sunday 6 October, 2013

Charleston Academy History pupils, who are in Belgium visiting the WW1 battlefields and memorials, visited the Menin Gate on Sunday 6 October. The Menin Gate is a memorial to missing British and Commonwealth soldiers killed in the Ypres Salient of World War 1.

As a mark of respect, the pupils were proud to wear the full Charleston Academy uniform, and some of the boys wore kilts to accompany the pipes.

The group also laid a wreath during their visit.

A full article on the visit will be published on their return.
