On the 30th August the vehicles travelled, under their own power, from Tyne Cot Cemetery to the Menin Gate via Hooge Crater Cemetery, Perth Cemetery (China Wall) and Railway Dugouts Burial Ground (Transport Farm). Graves were visited, handbells rung and songs sung at each place. The bells and lorries were present at the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate that evening and five wreaths were laid by various groups connected with the bell delivery.
The bells were delivered to St George's Memorial Church, Ypres on Thursday 31st August 2017 and were dedicated by the Chaplain, Revd. Gillian Trinder, at a special service at 5.00pm that day.
Over the next few weeks work will continue in the tower, the bells will be hung, electrical and sound control work will be completed, walls will be decorated and panelling installed and, finally, a carpet will be laid.
