  • It just about one-time Christmas file in 1914 is here symbolized by the football match between Germans and British. The "artificial" trenches and the monument itself handles me certainly not. Gave me more feeling like there is for this football item still but a memorial at could. The football attributes were perhaps best left bijblijvend. Of course does not alter the historical so exceptional "twinning" between enemies. Twinning that was made impossible by the upper echelons in the following war years, for various reasons.

  • As one of the places where a Christmas truce was celebrated together by both parties with football and small presents, it stands for what brings people together in times of peril and hardship and how sports (here football) can unite people from all over the world. This small memorial is worth a visit, not alone for people, interested in The Great war, but peace loving or football-crazed minds can all have a moment of truce right next to Ploegsteert Wood.
  • Newly constructed in 2015, this is a respectful memorial to the Christmas Truce, which took place at several locations along the Western Front in December 1914.
