A late contribution



Well, with all the partying and official commemoration I missed out to post s/thing. But since the german troops withdrew from belgian soil, it was not until around to Nov. 25. Anyway, here a nice monument in commemoration of our noble people, who gave their lives for the just side!  Laters Pilgrim

The inscription indicates that the monument was given by the King in honor of his dead. That shows an aspect of monarchy which I consider attractive. The identification of the king with the people — so that he fulfills his duties for their good.

I'm so very glad that you young rollerskaters/microbiologists are so interested in what happened in our Spanish Civil War and Europe's World War II plus the fall of the Berlin Wall. Yes, don't forget because history tends to repeat itself... Gros bisous, M.

By the way, PILGRIM, you're VERY absent from my blog lately... I was so happy to get feedback from another English-speaker blogger... Hugs, M.
