Bellewaerde Memorial Fund!
Help Raise £20,000
Much has been written about Ypres and its major battles during the First World War, such as the First, Second and Third battles, also the great battle of Passchendaele. Many soldiers lost their lives and are remembered each year on Armistice Day. This can only happen if there is some reference point, a place or time, for those men to be remembered.
Little is remembered however, about the Battle of Bellewaerde, which took place on the 16th June 1915, it is also known as the First Battle of Bellewaerde. A battlefield approximately ½ mile square, where over 1000 men died within a 12 hour period and many others wounded, some would die later of infection or complications.
Please help the built of this memorial! Only €1, £1 or $1 is enough! Each step make us closer to built the memorial! How more money, how bigger we can make! Bellewaerde is today know for the Theme Park "Bellewaerde", but we need not to forget this ground has been baptized with blood from thousand people!
