Kirsty Young presents live coverage of the commemorations to mark the centenary of the Battle of Passchendaele from Flanders in Belgium. 100 years on from the eve of this battle, events begin at the Menin Gate in Ypres, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, together with the King and Queen of the Belgians, dignitaries and descendants of the men who fought gather for the traditional Last Post ceremony. The haunting sounding of the bugle call remembers all the men who served and fell ighting for peace in Flanders during the First World War.
