Phone app launched for 30,000th Last Post in Ypres

To commemorate the 30,000th last Post Ceremony at Menin Gate, the Last Post Association have released an App for the iPad/iPhone – search ‘The Last Post Association’ in the App Store.

This lists all of the names on the memorial and indicates the specific panels on which the names can be located. It also includes some very basic information about each casualty (from CWGC) but in a few cases gives more details, fuller stories, and photographs.

There is also a lot of background information about Menin Gate, the daily ceremony and it is a possible source for images of a lot of regimental badges.

We recommend installing this App, especially if visiting Menin Gate, as many of us will be in October for the Battlefield Tour.

We will also be making contact with them to offer our research to the app.
