The LF Cycling Club also wants to contribute to raise the profile of the Death Wire from 14-18. Especially now that there is also an exhibition in the Achelse Kluis about the big explosion of the German ammunition trains on Hamont station in 1918. According to the ED, almost 30 municipalities are participating in this commemoration of the 350 km long electrical border barrier in those years. The leader of a white crocus route to commemorate the wire of death is the municipality of Maasmechelen, which will plant no less than 35,000 pieces. At FKP 217 in front of the entrance of De Kluis you will find the first Wire of Death reconstruction and on return after boundary marker 217 at FKP 216 and between FKP 38 then on the Route for FKP 85 at the Weerterweg near the Smeetshof, so here a little further than the border bicycles to reconstruct the wire there as well & nbsp; to view at this nature point. And even after FKP 17 a very nice commemoration point was created, there at the border marker.
