De Panne, Kerkstraat 69





The military cemetery of De Panne is best reached by rail. From the De Panne railroad station to the cemetery is a good 3/4 mile. If you dont like the walk, the coastal tramway is a good alternative. Leaving from the railroadstation, the cemetery is at the second stop, right at the cemetery gate. Stopplace: Mother Lambic.





This cemetery is the largest Belgian military cemetery. As with the Adinkerke cemetery, only 1 1/2 mile away, its construction started already during the war. After the war, many casualties of war where transfered here from smaller cemeteries in Flanders Fields.


At the entrance of the military cemetery, which adjoins the municipal cemetery of De Panne, are the tombstones of the victims of the Second World War and of local veterans deceased after either of both wars.


On a surface of 6 acres 3,366 casualties of the First World War are buried. 811 of them are only known unto God.
