  2. Wonderful. Have a question. I see 3 foreign (not Belgian) medals in the middle of the group and not at the end. Is this correct? Just want to learn. Jef
  3. I'm looking forward to it. Jef

  8. The horizontal part made of a grenade driving band? or do I see wrong.... a kind of sweetheart? kind regards, Jef
  9. Hello Stijn, I'm afraid don't have the 51st divisional history but if I can help you with scans from the relevant pages of "The Third Ypres, Passchendaele. The day by day account."( Written byC.

  12. Hello Gents, Can someone read this german please. I'n also interested in the name of the Leutnant & Ortskommandant in the second pic. Documents are here in our local village archive of the "Gemeinde Vichte" With kind regards & thanks, jef
  13. Hello Andy, Thank you for your kind wishes. Do you know if there was a Lt Strohbusch in Bay FAR 12. That man with his ordonance stayed in the house of that lady. There were 40 horses in the factory. That's the only information she gives... It's a pity I don't have any dates. I found out there was a RFAR 12 in the area ( Kortrijk-Courtrai) on 7 august 1917 . Kind regards, Jef
