Monument aux Morts Allemand du Château Dalle-Dumont

Monument to the dead (WERVICQ-SUD)

On Wervicq 'Mountain' stands a German war memorial showing a nurse caring for a bedridden soldier. Erected in 1915, the monument is all that remains of the original cemetery that the occupying forces established in the grounds of Château Dalle-Dumont, the latter being used as a hospital to treat soldiers wounded on the nearby front at Ypres. Moved to another location on the 'Mountain' in 1920, the German cemetery today contains the graves of 2,506 soldiers including eight Austro-Hungarians.
