Default BBC news coverage of the Passchendaele centenary.

I was appalled by the inaccuracies in the the BBC's 10
o'clock News last night in the reports of the centenary of
the start of the Third Battle of Ieper.

well if you want to be a pedant

it's Ypres

No it isn't! It is in Flanders and its name - Ieper - is the
Flemish name. Ypres is French.

Are you going to refer to Londres and Dovres in future? Or
would you prefer English?
