Boom

 

 

At the cemetery in the Kerkhofstraat in Boom a sober honorary park is arranged for 10 local heroes who lost their lives in the First World War.

They are under a city selected tombstone giving little information about each soldier. Name, date of birth and date of death is all that is mentioned.

 

The graceful monument has an appropriate inscription, but its symbolism escapes me totally.
