Sixth Form Student Visits Menin Gate on Remembrance Sunday

Email from Archivist Mr Hildrey

An MTBS Sixth Form student, Dominic, was chosen to attend the 100 year anniversary of WWI service at the Menin Gate in Belgium, on behalf of West Lancashire Scouts this month. It was a huge honour to be invited to landmark event, with many dignitaries attending.

Dominic travelled to Belgium and visited various WWI sites in the area, attending the 100 year commemoration ceremony on Sunday 11th November. Whilst Dominic was there, he sent us some photos of the Menin Gate, where he found many of our Old Boys’ names after talking to our Archivist, Mr Hildrey.

Thank you Dominic for sharing your findings with the Merchants’ community and what a memorable occasion to be a part of.
