Dear Sir, that is a beautiful clip. I love Queen Astrid! I love Belgium, too.

Sorry this is slightly off topic, but there is a wonderful website, "Les Médecins de la Grande Guerre" at www.1914-1918.be. The site is run by a Belgian doctor and historian, and is a tribute to Belgian ( and some French and British ) war heroes of WW1, with a special focus on the doctors and nurses. Many of the people discussed in the articles were not only very patriotic, in the true, virtuous sense, but also very devout, in a splendid, touching fashion. Perhaps, you might like to look at this site some time.

Best wishes,
Mary

Etes-vous Belge?

I have a very old picture of King Leopold. It is in a book I have from 1918. Mostly it is falling apart though. As a school boy I used to look at hese pictures for hours on end.

Dear Sir,

I'm not Belgian, just interested in the country.

I like looking at old pictures too! It's alot of fun.

Unfortunately, that website seems to have technical problems sometimes, but it should be OK again soon.

Best wishes,
Mary
