A letter from home: a sculpture by Rik RyonWorthy of a visit was a new exhibition
Passchendaele 1917-2007: The Belgians have not forgotten
previously open at the residence of the Belgian Ambassador, is now closed.

The exhibition was opened by the Belgian Ambassador in the presence of the Duke of Kent on the 24th September 2007 and is a tribute to the British Commonwealth forces for their support to the Belgian people throughout the dark days of WW1. The exhibition attempts to give an impression of what life must have been like in Passchendaele in 1917. The exhibits on show were lent by the Belgian Royal Army Museum, the Passchendaele & Zonnebeke Museum together with the Imperial War, the Chelsea Army and Bovington Royal Tank museums.

Also on display was the work of two artists; photographer Michael St Maur Sheil who displays photographs of Passchendaele of today and sculptor Rik Ryan who uses WW1 scrap metal found on the battlefields to create his poignant pieces of art.

For those who are unable to make it to the exhibition, here are a few images of the opening ceremony and exhibits.
