‘1917, Total War in Flanders’ – Exhibition 'Irish blood on Flemish soil'

Exhibition
Kemmel

The church in Kemmel is the setting for the thematic exhibition 'Irish blood on Flemish soil'. Ireland has had a troubled history. Yet during the Mine Battle of Messines the 16th (Irish) Division and the 36th (Ulster) Division fought side by side. In view of their underlying political differences, it is justified to regard this as a unique act of partnership and co-operation. Even today, this collaborative participation in the battle has a strong symbolic value. More info: www.flandersfields.be/en/1917
