WW1 soldiers remembered in Flanders memorial service

Hundreds of soldiers who died in one of World War One's bloodiest battles have been remembered at a service in Belgium.

The Royal Welch Fusiliers 1st Battalion was annihilated during 20 ferocious days of fighting in the countryside around Ypres in October 1914.

About 200 people from Wales made the journey to Flanders at the weekend to honour their sacrifice.
