The Meetjesland in the north of East-Flanders, Belgium

Balgerhoeke: a reminder


South Albert Regiment,
29th Canadian Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment
In August and September of 1944, Eeklo and the surrounding area were the site of heavy tank fighting,
in which the South Alberta Regiment (SAR 29th CDN Arm'd RECCE Regt) saw action.
This Sherman tank is a fitting memorial to that bloody fighting.
The SAR gratefully salutes the people of Eeklo for the warmth of their welcome,
and their kindness both during and since the war,
and espacially for their reverent care of their war dead buried here.
