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.
