"On Friday 27th [2009], I attended a ceremony at the 51st Highland Division monument in La Roche, where a sizeable contingent of the Belgian Army and local officials paid their respects. "Last Post", "God Save the Queen" and "La Brabanconne" were played by the Belgian military band and wreaths were laid.
