Were your ancestors war refugees from Liège, Mons, Tournai, Brussels or another part of Belgium?
Did your ancestors fight at the Battle of Mons in 1914, the first battle between the UK and Germany in history? In the Allied or the German army?
Did your ancestors serve in the French or the German army at the “Battle of the Frontiers” in the Belgian Ardennes? Or did your ancestors flee from Belgium to the UK or part of the British Empire?
Was your grandfather in the trenches at “Plugstreet”? And did he take part in the famous Christmas Truce Football Match there in 1914?
Or perhaps your ancestor was in the medical corps who looked after wounded and sick soldiers and perhaps he or she told you stories about that hell on earth?
