In 1914 and 1915 this bridge was an important outpost for the Belgian and later French troops. A memorial plaque on the wall commemorates the French Zouaves. In November 1914 French Zouaves attacked strong German positions . The Germans launched their advance by making captured Zouaves walk ahead of them into no man’s land. Suddenly one of the Zouaves cried out ‘Shoot us, for God’s sake: it’s the German’s! The attacked failed. At the Three Canals De Boot, an ecological canal boat, is moored.
