Merchtem

 

 

 

 

At the municipal cemetery of Merchtem and the graveyard of its parish Osselt, between the civilian graves, we find nine graves of heroes of the First World War.

 

One of these tombs is empty, because the remains of the soldier whom is supposed to be there, Juul De Winde, were transferred to the crypt of the Pilgrimage Tower in Diksmuide on August 22, 1937.
