It is a remarkable museum, Jacques. I found its honesty refreshing, the confrontations necessary, and the creativity engaging.
Thanks for sharing with us.
These sculptures are a very interesting feature at De Panne, and the lighting in this image makes it a great photo.
We saw so much in such a short time but now I wish we had walked along the esplanade.
And it was an unforgetable, though brief visit that we made to this church. What a history it has!
This excellent photo is due to your choice of the perfect position from which to view the Tower.
I am so pleased to have been there now.
Thanks very very much, Jacques.
Silence is still appropriate, Berend, 100 years on.
Thanks Berend. This little cemetery has real significance for my family, for about here somewhere lies the remains of one of our family. All that we know is that on the 7th (or maybe the following day) he was buried 750 yards east of Mesen... and this is pretty close to that point. Most of the burials in this cemetery are "known only to God".
Private David Findlay was killed on the afternoon of 7 June 1917.
I have done as you requested Lex. I was tempted to add the photos of the remains of Hill 60 as well, for that site is as much a memorial to the Australian tunnellers as the Butte is to the 5th Division- though you probably prefer images of constructed memorials rather than of significant sites in the group collection.
Anyway, pleased to be able to contribute.
Fascinating image and very nice presentation. LK-3
Paisaje bellísimo, L+F
Bien cordialmente, jantoni.
Thankfully, Berend. Though its history makes me shudder!
