This circular temple and nearby military cemeteries of the Commonwealth commemorate the soldiers who were killed in action in the Comines region during the First World War. The impressive memorial is supported by colonnades and guarded by two stone lions. The names of 11,447 British soldiers who have no known grave are engraved in the walls. The sounding of the Last Post takes place on the first Friday of every month at 7 pm.
As we are nearing the 100th anniversary of the Great War, the interpretation centre “Plugstreet 14-18” enable visitors to experience what life was like for soldiers and civilians during the First World War.
