  • A fantastic memorial that stands out above the trees around it. The trees signify the clouds of gas. This was near the place where gas was first used on the French. You must visit this and stand for a...  more »
  • A truly beautiful little space dedicated to the men and women of Canada who fought in the region of Ieper during WWI. My family and I live nearby and make a point to visit EVERY Remembrance Day. 
  • This Canadian Memorial in memory of the victims of the first gas attacks by the Germans in april 1915 proposes a mourning Canadian soldier. On a witgranieten column of ten meters is the bust of a mourning Canadian soldier. With bowed head he stands with folded hands on a rifle pointed down. Is locally the canadien. If you state you will be caught off guard by the appearance of this image. That brings about something from within, how also the sober decoration.

  • A very well kept memorial with the impressive stone "Brooding Soldier" and surrounding gardens which have been planted with soils from all over Canada. Don't forget to sign the guest register at the back. There are no toilets nearby so keep that in mind.
  • 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.
