Heavy howitzer grenade in Beselare

Our experts assisted the excavation works for the construction of a waste water collector by Aquafin. During the layered excavations we found several explosion craters, and several UXO items. The most illustrious find was a 9,2” howitzer grenade which had penetrated the soil to a depth of 2,5 m without exploding. It was fired from a distance of about 10 km on the German Flandern I-Stellung
