E. Standard: "Belgian Frigate Brings Flanders Soil To London For Memorial"


War Hero


"A Belgian Navy frigate passed through Tower Bridge today as it delivered soil from the Flanders battlefield for a new First World War memorial garden in London.

Louise Marie carried 70 sandbags filled with soil to the capital after the Duke of Edinburgh secured special dispensation from the Belgian Royal Family to allow it to be removed from Flanders, the scene of some of the Great War's bloodiest battles."
