Description

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 frontrunner of a white crocus route to commemorate the thread of the dead is the municipality of Maasmechelen, which will plant no fewer than 35,000 pieces. At FKP 217 in front of the entrance to De Kluis you will find the first Death Wire reconstruction, then for the Border in Bergeijk the 2nd, between FKP 22 and 18 and the highway between FKP 2 and 15. On the way back you will also pass memorial points of WWII, after FKP 5 !
