EXCEPTIONAL MEMORIES OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR


SHRAPNEL BALL, BELLEWAERDE RIDGE, ZILLEBEKE
Millions of these shrapnel balls are into the fields of the Ypres Salient, this is only one of them I found near Bellewaerde Ridge. Shrapnel shells were anti-personnel artillery munitions which carried a large number of individual bullets close to the target and then ejected them to allow them to continue along the shell's trajectory and strike the target individually, often resulting in major mutilations.
