What an unbelievable and unforgettable evening as the Alford Academy Pipe Band provided the musical backdrop to the wreath laying ceremony at Menin Gate. Thousands gathered including 20 plus coaches of school pupils from all across Europe. Dozens of complete strangers spoke to us afterwards to comment on how outstanding our school band were. Many emotional onlookers came over to commend the band on the quality of their playing. We now head back to Bruges tired but exceptionally proud of what we have been part of today.
