2/9/2007 We continue our work on "Ons Meetjesland", the electronic re-edition of this magazine.  I'm so sorry for those of you who don't speak Dutch.  It would take me an extra lifetime to translate all this.  Here is the homepage of "Ons Meetjesland".
Right now if I wanted to start another translation into English it would be "Le Pantalon" by Alain Scoff.  This is the true story of a perfectly courageous French soldier Lucien Bersot, in the trenches WW I near Soissons who refuses a torn dirty pair of trousers, with mud and blood all over it.  And for this act of disobedience he is eventually executed on orders of a colonel, for whom the battlefield is a map on a wall in a comfortable chateau well out of harm's way and whose only weapons are little flags to be pinned on that map with a cigar in his face and a glass of cognac in his hand.  The colonel is promoted after the war.  Many years later Bersot is fully rehabilitated and the injustice of his death is recognized except that the colonel who was responsible for it is not sanctioned.

6/1/2007 We have been allowed to scan a couple of old pictures of St.-Margriete.  You can find them here.  And here you can now admire a picture of the teaching staff of the girls' school of St.-Laureins. It dates from about 1952.  Many thanks for these and many other documents to Edith and Monique Van Vooren.
