Belgium: Last Post Ceremony in Ypres

On Monday I got nine postcards: three from Belgium, five from Japan and one from the Czech Rpublic.

One of the cards from Belgium shows the Last Post Ceremony in Ypres. The Last Post Post Ceremony is held every evening since 1928 at the Menin Gate. It commemorates the fallen soldiers of World War I.

With related stamp:
Centenary of World War I (from set of five) (issued 13-06-2016)
The Battle of Tabora was fought in September 1916 between forces from the Belgian Congo and German East Africa. During the battle the Belgian forces conquered Tabora, Kigoma and the Tanganjikabahn railway.

Thank You very much Gerda!
