Oostwinkel is a district of the village of Zomergem a few miles south of Eeklo. It has less than 700 inhabitants. In the cemetery surrounding the church of Oostwinkel is a beautiful honorary park where victims of the First and Second World War divide the space.
There are 8 victims of the First World War, all killed in the final offensive. It is not clear whether the unknown soldier present was killed in the First or in the Second World War, because all the victims are under the same standard Belgian gravestone.
