The memorials in this area are very poignant and moving to visit. This area of Langemark has many different monuments to visit, each has a board next to it to explain the significance. If you are confused (as I was) by all the different names...More

Worth going to see this monument. The monument is out of the way, but captures the atrocity of gas warfare tactics.
