Each year a group of living historians travel to what is regarded as the original site of The Christmas Truce at Saint-Yves (Saint-Yvon – Ploegsteert; Comines-Warneton in Belgium to recreate the now famous football match, in 2016 Old Soldier Media were lucky enough to be invited over to cover it and get some shots for the Rock2Recovery Christmas message, there is a small trench system that has been built there next to the Commonwealth War Graves cemetery (which now has some extra graves as they dug up some more bodies while building the trenches) . The site of the now famous match itself is on the other side of the road and is marked with a wooden cross and a small information board.
