A living monument of two world wars
A message from Dominek Deendooven
The ‘four trunked chestnut tree’ near the Menin Gate in Ypres which survived two wars, is one of the nominees for the European ‘Tree of the Year’.
The final vote is given to the public.
The City of Ypres has made this lovely film featuring the Last Post buglers, local historian Lieven Stubbe, In Flanders Fields Museum director Piet Chielens and the Mayor of Ypres.
We would like to have the ‘First World War community’ to vote for the Ypres tree here > www.treeoftheyear.org/Stromy/The-Four-Trunked-Survivor
Here at Ypres, we are missing our many British friends and visitors.
