Tuesday-PC-Wk169-Hill

~~~~~~

 

Belgium’s Hill 60.

A fascinating battle ground of World War I.

I have often heard stories of soldiers from

the opposing forces having a chat across no-man’s land

At Hill 60 front lines were within a few metres of each other.

 

 

The reverse view.

From memory it is not a natural hill.

It was created by earth removal works

when the railway line

(mentioned in Wikipedia)

was constructed.

 

Hill 60 is a World War I battlefield

memorial site and park

in the Zwarteleen area of Zillebeke

south of Ypres, Belgium.

It is located about 4.6 kilometres (2.9 mi)

from the centre of Ypres and

directly on the railway line to Comines.
