Gallery 2 - The Western Front
The Menin Gate is one of four Memorials to the Missing in Belgian Flanders which cover the area known as the Ypres Salient.
The site of the Menin Gate was chosen because of the hundreds of thousands of men who passed through it on their way to the battlefields.
The Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial now bears the names of more than 54,000 officers and men whose graves are not known.
'He is not missing. He is here.'
