Following the publication of “Mud Beneath…” in 2005, Gay and I were invited to Belgium in 2007 to the commemoration of the 90th anniversary of the October events at Passchendaele. I was asked to present copies of the book to the Passchendaele Memorial Museum, and to the Mayor of Zonnebeke at a formal Council function. This coincided with the twinning of Zonnebeke with the Waimakariri District Council, Canterbury.

Gay and I are considering the invitation to return for the 100th anniversary.
