The liberation 1918-2018

 

In Flanders Fields of September 1918 a massive campaign was launched by Belgian, British, Commonwealth, French and American forces against the German axis forces in a final effort to end the War of wars and liberate Belgium.

 

To commemorate this final offensive, a historical multinational column will embark on an epic journey from Lo-Reninge to Ghent between 13 and 19 August 2018.

 

Soldiers in period uniforms and equipment, using horse drawn wagons, field kitchens and cavalry will advance though Flanders again. Stopping in several towns, at every memorial and battlefield to pay due homage to all of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our liberty.

 

May the column remind today's people of the struggles and sufferings endured by our ancestors, lest we forget.
