Two Belgian war dead are buried twice (!).

 

Soldier Beelen Eugène (or is it Eugeen?) of the 3rd regiment foothunters, born in Sint-Truiden on September 30, 1895 and deceased in Guingamp on April 6, 1916 has two French crosses in this cemetery.

 

 

        

 

 

Soldier Dobbelaer Arthur of the 1st artillery regiment, born in Sint-Niklaas on February 18, 1892 and deceased in Guingamp on January 15, 1916 also has two French crosses. His name on the second cross reads Dabbelaer not Dobbelaer, but the list of IV NIOOO mentions only the name Dobbelaer.
