Excavators at an early World War One frontline in the village of Eppegem, Belgium, digging up fallen soldiers to be able to have them properly buried. Eppegem was twice the scene of heavy close combat in the first months of the Great War between the German army on its way to the Marne and the Belgian army retreated to and fighting from Antwerp. The excavation and burial of the fallen soldiers was a charity work done by ‘Miss Orianne’. The photo was probably taken in 1915 during the occupation and shows Miss Orianne’s workers and a german officer standing over a corpse. Around 200 soldiers rest eternally at the military cemetary of Eppegem, both from World War one and two. Original black and white photo credit and copyright: Heemkundige Kring De Semse.
