  • My family visited this memorial as it marks a special event in our family narrative. My grandfather fought in the Second Battle of Ypres April 22-24, 1915. He fortunately survived the gas attacks but was wounded in the knee and captured by the Germans during their advance. He spent the rest of the war as a POW and came to admire the German people. This monument truly is a fitting tribute to those that fell in those tragic days. We visited on a rainy day and the giant soldier brooding in a towering fashion over the surrounding trees is a sight worth remembering. About 2 km SE on Keezellarstraat is another small monument on Gravenstaffel Ridge located exactly where the Canadians faced the Geman attack.
  • Moving to see where the Canadians stood their ground when thy got gassed.
  • Beautiful little park and monument.
