Mark Hone Posted 7 October , 2018 Share Posted 7 October , 2018 (edited) I am planning to include the Crowe VC site near Nieuwkerke (Neuve Eglise) on my forthcoming school battlefields tour. It is over 15 years since I visited the site and I was slightly disappointed to see that the site of Crowe's attack on the German machine gun positions on 13th April 1918, which used to be an open field, has been built on. I am assuming that the plaque unveiled a few years ago on the building now occupying the site of the old Mairie is still there. Could anyone who has visited recently or has local knowledge please give me an update? I know that some guidebooks in the past got the location mangled, thinking it took place near the present Mairie in the middle of the village Edited 7 October , 2018 by Mark Hone Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
