The Band at the Menin Gate – 2013

In the end of October the Band traveled to Belgium to perform at the Menin Gate. This was a opportunity for the members of the Band to show their respect to all those who died within the conflicts.

The Band was honored to perform in the ceromony, alongside a violinist who plated ‘Oh Danny Boy‘ in stunned silence. Members of the Christchurch Branch were in attendance, along with the Christchurch Branch Standard Bearers.

The ceromony was documented, and a fantastic video capturing the experiance of this event is avaliable below.

“Being part of this event was amazing, feeling connected to the past in a new way.”
– Band Member

“Watching the video, and seeing the number of people, let me know how important this ceromony is.”
