Default Torch walk Passchendaele

Thursday I went to see the torch walk in Passchendaele.
This is a remebrance to the great war (first World War).
Its was pretty crowdy, so not that easy to bring you all a glimp of what was happening up there.

Very nice Lordje. It's good to see countries around the world giving remembrance to their fallen.
I believe I just recently watched a show on the history channel on this. If I'm not mistaken there was also a foreign ( non american made ) film made. Many people on both sides were killed there. I guess I didn't watch it close enough, once I lay down on the couch I'm immediately half asleep : )
It was the first time I had heard the term duck boards which were used in the trenches because of the huge amounts of rain making it so muddy they had to put boards down to get through. People actually died when they fell off the boards and drowned in the mud. Sorry for the long winded response.

Difficult shots but you've done well. As Steven says, "You've captured the mood"

Thank you Steve and Scouse.

Still it brings also a bit sadness with it, thinking of the most bloody wars of them all. 52 countrys where active in it and all had big losses.
And still there are wars going on, when will people learn....

Flanders had enough with WW I and WW II, hope we never will get a WW III
