Le Mans, Sarthe

Avenue François Chancel

 

 

In Le Mans we find an honorary park for Belgian casualties only. Most of the 76 Belgian heroes here came to Le Mans in order to train soldiers or to receive training. These 76 would never return to Belgium. Our soldiers rest under a Belgian standard tombstone, one of them is known to God only.

 

We were lucky to get permission to drive to the honorary park by car. Not only was the cemetery huge, but as custom in France, it was on a hillside.
