Back Heirweg 4, Middelkerke

Here you can see a regiment’s command post that was camouflaged with brickwork. Around the command post runs a trench with positions for machine guns. Inside there are numerous drawings and writings of servicemen who manned the command post. One of them is “Auf Flämische Strand Auf Deutsche Wacht Dem Tode Getreu Dem Vaterland”. Another example is: “Niemals Mehr Krieg Bitte”, showing that the German soldiers too were keen for the war to end.
