Belgian Military Cemetery in Keiem

Belgian Cemetery

This is the final resting place of 628 soldiers of the Belgian 8ste and 13de Linie Regiment. In October 1914, during the Battle of the Yser, they attempted to recapture the village of Keiem. Their mission failed and during the confused retreat to the hamlet of Tervaete on the other side of the Yser hundreds of Belgians were killed.
