The LF-Fietsclub also wants to contribute to draw more attention to the Death Wire of 14-18. Especially now that there is also an exhibition in the Achelse Kluis about the great explosion of the German ammunition trains at Hamont station in 1918. According to the ED, almost 30 municipalities are participating in this commemoration of the 350 km long electric border barrier in those years. The municipality of Maasmechelen, who planted no fewer than 35,000 crocuses in 2018, is leading the way in a white crocus route to commemorate the death thread. Then make it a round from FKP 1 and 22! At FKP 24 you cross the bridge to see the monument 14 -18 at the first street on the left.
