Pool of Peace

Following a pleasant look around the Flanders Field museum and some free time in Ypres for lunch and shopping for chocolates, our historians visited the Pool of Peace, the remains of one of the huge bomb craters blown after mines were dug by the allies under the German lines. The sounds of this and the 18 other simultaneous explosions could be hard as far away as London.

We are almost at the end of our tour. A quick stop at our final cemetery before we head back to Calais for our ferry.
