Is that you volunteering?

Vote No and forever lose the right to complain about a UK Govt that does not represent Scotland
Vote Yes in 2014 and get the government we want, every single time

After experiencing the joys of a JCFC guided tour of Cyprus, wouldn't want to miss this one!

Is Jim driving???

Still investigating options but its looking like a 10.30 departure from central Brussels.

Get to Ypres at lunchtime and we get a guide to take us round Tyne Cot, the battlefield areas and cemeteries with an emphasis on areas where Scottish regiments will have fought and the dead buried.

We then go back to Ypres where people can visit the museum, the Menin Gate, wander around as its a lovely wee town or go to the pub.

Depending on the timing of it, we will stay for the Last Post at the Menin Gate. If its about 8.30, that would mean we wouldn't be getting back to Brussels until about 10-10.30 so that could be an issue.

This is all very loose at the moment and I am open to suggestions if anyone has any particular experience of the area, let me know.

That's sounds great. I was going to post and ask if we'd be staying for the last post.
