Since 1928 the buglers of the Ypres fire brigade have been playing an ode to the soldiers who died in WWI, each day of each year at 20:00. An international network of firemen & buglers played an impressive ode to the ode for this occasion.


The queen was accompanied by her British born lady-in-waiting, Lindsay Edwards.
