Menin Gate remembrance

Oxfordshire’s Bill Butcher and Peter Smith of Jersey Lodge, No. 2334, visited Ypres during a World War I commemorative tour and laid a wreath at the Menin Gate on behalf of the lodge. 

Both are former police officers and they travelled to Belgium with the Thames Valley Police Social Club.

While there, they looked for memorials and graves of former police officers who had joined up, placing poppy crosses on them.
