I adopted this grave when statuettes were made in honor of the fallen during world war 1on Belgian territory
everyone who made a statue adopted a grave
That's how I adopted Walter Hanson's grave
and this is how I try to find out everything about this person
he enlisted the day after my birthday and died the day before my birthday
47 years later I was born and somehow I feel connected to this person
Yours sincerely
Fierens Walter
