Remembrance Day has come and gone – but we will still remember them.

Nine British soldiers who served and died in battle of Passchendaele during the First World War, are laid to rest more than a century after their deaths with full military honours at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's (CWGC) Tyne Cot Cemetery near Ypres in Belgium.
