Last quote by Bart Degroote

Because the dugout was never properly used, they didn't find as many artefacts in the late Eighties as they did around the trenches but there are buttons [from uniforms], a hammer, the remains of a shovel, and rubber waders now on show [in the museum]. The trenches and First World War sites visitors can see today are good, but most are reconstructions – this is the real thing. And once it shuts on November 10 that's it. It'll be closed forever, and allowed to re-flood with water. It may be our last chance to see an original relic of the Great War.feedback
