(from Switches - copied from the 3RTR forum) A brand new HBMGC/Tank Corps Memorial commemorating the entire HBMGC and Tank Corps actions in the Ypres Salient during WW1, is to be placed in the little Village of Poelkapelle, West Flanders, Belgium. This Memorial will then become the ONLY Tank Memorial in Belgium. The official Inauguration date has yet to arranged however, this date will revolve around the RTR entirely. I envisage it will be at the latter end of the year. Sitrep today. The proposed Memorial has been designed. The funding is in place and secure. The Flemish Government and local Governement have officially offered the plot of land in Perpetuity. RTR HQ & the RTR are directly involved. * All official RTR Association branches will be contacted soon, either by RTR HQ or myself in due time regarding attendance details etc. Discussions are at present taking place between all parties concerned, regarding the Inauguration Ceremony date and details. Apart from the main Inauguration Ceremony, the 2 day event will also come complete with a wreath lay Ceremony at the grave of Captain Robertson VC Tank Corps. The necessary Menin Gate Memorial Last Post Ceremony and a battlefield tour. Chris Lock. Coordinator. Proposed Tank Corps Memorial Ypres Salient 1917 - 1918.
