Zero Hour 7.06.1917.: Irish blood & Flemish mud

Exhibition
Kemmel

A unique exhibition that tells the story of the part played by the Irish in the war in Flanders. Against the backdrop of a bloody struggle in the island of Ireland itself, both Irish divisions - one Catholic, one Protestant - fought together on 7 June 1917 on either side of the road between Kemmel and Wijtschate. The connecting theme throughout the exhibition is the life and death of the Irish nationalist William Redmond, who chose to fight alongside the British and played a prominent role in the 16th Division. The exhibition provides
background and explanation about the Irish situation. Thanks to collaboration with museums in both Northern Ireland and the Republic, a number of remarkable artefacts will also be displayed back at the place where they first made history.
