FLYBOYS

Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery contains the largest number of airmen in Belgium. Ninety-four RFC and RAF members are buried in the cemetery. Their squadron was based in one of aerodromes in the neighbourhood of Poperinge. Flyboys, heroes in the sky but often victim of technical failures. Many crashes took place while taking off or landing. The exhibition focusses on some striking pilot stories related to persons buried in Lijssenthoek.
