The Hexenkessel, 'hot spot' in the dunes, closest to enemy lines, often heavily shelled and raided

here the son of the couple bleeded to death and here they kneeled to be in thoughts with their son

I have two or three other travel reports from the 1920s but fear that they cannot be read here.

Egbert,

thanks for the link to this thread. It's a very moving account.

Do you still have the travel reports you referred to? If so please post them.

Charle thanks to revive this thread. I certainly do have the other accounts at home and promise to post them here. But it takes some 3 weeks as I am currently in the middle of the Red Sea with no access to my Great War files.

Thank you, I look forward to reading them.

Enjoy your holiday.

I've just seen the link to this thread on AliceF's recent thread on German cemeteries. Sorry that I didn't see it back in 2012, but I'm afraid my response then would have been that I unfortunately didn't have time to translate the parents' account, as I was busy translating German material for the Fromelles project. And now, I'm afraid the answer is much the same, as I'm busy translating German material for a Somme centenary project.

Can somebody tell me the name of the German soldier who died early januar 1915 in Lombardsijde (Hexenkessel) ?

Unsere Flandernreise in August 1927

Or perhaps tell me where I can find some more information?
