Belgian Pilgrimage to England

A large party of Belgians, numbering nearly 700, made a pilgrimage on Monday to the Mausoleum of the thirty Belgian soldiers who died at Shorncliffe Military Hospital, Folkestone, during the War.

The pilgrims travelled to Folkestone in the steamship Prince Baudoin and were met at Folkestone by Sir Philip Sassoon, M.P. After luncheon the party marched to the Mausoleum in which Baron van Zuyien van Nyvelt placed busts of the late King Albert and of Queen Elizabeth.
