The Last Post has been played under the Menin Gate Memorial in Ypres since 1928, thanks to The Last Post Association.

The Association describes its mission is as follows:

"True to its statutes, the Last Post Association wishes to honour and remember the soldiers of the British Empire who gave their lives during the Great War of 1914-1918. The Last Post ceremony seeks to express, day after day, the lasting debt of gratitude which we all owe to the men who fought and fell for the restoration of peace and the independence of Belgium."

The Association's website has details of membership, extended ceremonies at the Gate, local and national museums and organisations and details of events commemorating the First World War.  To visit their website click here.
