The Menin Gate, a World War I memorial arch, is located on the road that the British soldiers would take on their way to the front lines at Ypres. Carved into it are the names of 54,896 fallen Allied soldiers who have no known grave. There was not room for the names of all such soldiers on the monument, and thus the thousands more who disappeared after August 16, 1917 have their names carved on a monument at Tyne Cot War Cemetary
. Every night at the Gate, traffic is stopped briefly, and a ceremonial rendition of Last Post is performed by a bugle corps. Sigfried Sassoons famous anti-war poem On Passing the New Menin Gate was inspired by this monument.
