Plaque: War memorial since WW2 at Colonne du Congrès
To the Belgians fallen in the service of peace since 1945.
AUX BELGES TOMBES AU SERVICE DE LA PAIX DEPUIS 1945
Of the 3 plaques this is the one furthest from the column. On Sunday 7 April 2002 (the anniversary of the massacre of 10 Belgian UN troops in Rwanda in 1994) wreaths were laid at this plaque.
Site: Colonne du Congrès (4 memorials)
1000, place du Congrès
On the wall around the monument, there are two further plaques expressing the following sentiment (in Flemish and French): "Passants, découvrez-vous, ici repose le soldat inconnu". In English: "Passers-by, take off your hats, here lies the unknown soldier". This charming instruction was brought to our attention by Pascal Laureyn.
