Great shell crater on Ypres, Oct 1917.
Many years ago ( mid 1980's) in a previous job I worked in a house doing some carpet cleaning - the owner was an army veteran and had served in WW1 - on his mantlepiece was a silver platter, all bent and worn - I spent some time talking to him and he told me it came from the cathedral in Ypres during WW1 when he saw action there.
