I shot this panorama while traveling this summer and just now stitched it together. The 'tourists' in this panorama are Gauthier, Carol, Bea and Bob. 

The Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing is one of four British and Commonwealth memorials to the missing in the battlefield area of the Ypres Salient in Belgian Flanders. The memorial bears the names of 54,389 officers and men from United Kingdom and Commonwealth Forces who fell in the Ypres Salient before 16th August 1917 and who have no known grave.
