Royal New Zealand Navy Officer Ben Martin at EGUERMIN in Ostend/Belgium for NATO excercise visit the Battlefields of his forebears

 Lt Benjamin Martin Royal New Zealand Navy came from Ostend – where he’s participating in a NATO exercise Dynamic Move - to Ieper/Ypres under the Menin Gate to pay respect to his forebears.

Lt Martin is reading the Ode during the ceremony,

It was a real pleasure for me to guide him, especially because I’m a former instructor and sea rider of this very well-known NATO school EGUERMIN in Ostend(35 years ago).
