The Nieuport Memorial was unveiled in 1928 and commemorates more than 500 soldiers, and sailors of the Royal Naval Division, who died on the Northern End of the Western Front and in land operations in north Belgium close to Antwerp and have no known grave.
The memorial was designed by noted architect, and Great War veteran, Charles Sergeant Jagger; the lions in particular a notable feature of his work.
The memorial is the most northern British war memorial on the Western Front battlefields, in a sector close to the Yser Canal, which few associate with the British Army in WW1.
Very moving experience. Shame about the pig ignorant Belgian builders who had taken over the site and objected vociferously to visitors. Spoilt the whole trip.
