Walking the Western Front in Poperinghe, Belgium

Poperinghe, Belgium - April 28 - The original piano sits in the dining room as it had during WW1. Behind is a photo of the soldiers, most of whom were Canadian singing around the piano. The Talbot House in Poperinghe was a calm oasis for WW1 soldiers. They could leave the front lines around Ypres and stay at Talbot and mix with all ranks for some peace and quiet. It is now run as a museum and B and B. Walking the Western Front. Close to half a million Canadians served overseas in the First World War mostly in the battle lines of the Western Front through Belgium and northern France.
