28 May 1940. For little Belgium invaded by the Nazis during WWII, the date means defeat and humiliation: a surrounded Belgian army sees no other way out than surrender. But exactly the same day in Tenby (UK – Wales) a few men recreate forces which four years later, in 1944, will put Belgium on the winning side.
Our aim is to commemorate those days, to thank the City of Tenby for their warm hospitality and to pay tribute to all of these men, in particular those who made this resurrection possible: Ambassador Emile de Cartier de Marchienne and General Victor van Strydonck de Burkel.
Our Committee will mobilise energies, both in UK and Belgium, for collecting reliable information, dispel fake news and prepare formal commemorations involving the Belgian and British authorities.
