‘We’ll never forget it’: Husband and wife honour soldiers killed in Passchendaele

Belgium Armistice Day
A man walks his dog through a paper poppy field outside the Menin Gate prior to a ceremony for Armistice Day in Ypres, Belgium, on Nov. 11. The Menin Gate Memorial bears the names of more than 54,000 British and Commonwealth soldiers who were killed in the Ypres Salient of World War I and whose graves are not known.

A New Brunswick couple has travelled to the Menin Gate Memorial in Belgium to honour his home’s namesake, who died 100 years ago at the Battle of Passchendaele.
