I was present on Oct. 22nd at Zillebeke-Ieper at the inauguration of a new monument dedicated to a certain Batallion of the Canadian army who took part in the Battle of Mount Sorrel. The small monument is erected close to Maple Copse Cemetery. So Remembrance still is very actual.
regards from Flanders
Lay them with all that is most living,
In light transcendent,
In the ageless aisles of silence,
With the immortals that saved the world
