The Battle of Passchendaele, also known as the Third Battle of Ypres, took place in Belgium. It finished on 10th November 1917.
It had lasted for 102 days and cost about 580,000 killed or wounded, of whom about 275,000 were British.
A Remembrance Day service was held at St Mary's Church on Sunday 12th November, and this was followed by a wreath laying ceremony at the War Memorial at Church End.
