Visiting Belgium

If you are looking at this page, I highly recommend you take a moment to look at a site created by one of our Brussels Branch members, Wilfred Bure. The Belgians Remember Them is a treasure trove of carefully curated information regarding all RAF and Commonwealth incidents in Belgium. It contains information regarding locations of memorials and cemeteries and links to specific squadrons.  

Another treasure trove of information both in terms of the website, and for a visit, is the Mons Tourist Office. Great friends of the Brussels Branch and strong supporters of the Poppy Appeal, we firmly recommend a stop by the office and catching up with Michel Vasko who is well-known for his wide-ranging knowledge and expertise. In particular, if you are looking for information about WWI dive into the website and look for "Mons en brochures" and click on "Mons 14-18". These brochures have recently be translated into English.

About the Royal British Legion

We provide financial, social and emotional care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces - past and present and their families. The Legion is also the national Custodian of Remembrance and safeguards the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces and is best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem the red poppy.

Founded in 1921, the Legion is not just about those who fought in the World Wars of the last century, but also about those involved in the many conflicts since 1945 and those still fighting for the freedom we enjoy today.
