Lately, I have been working with Philippe Vanderdonckt in Belgiuim who has adopted the grave of John Wold. Wold was killed in World War I by a shell fragment in the trenches near Nederename Belgium and is buried in Flanders Field.
Philippe Vanderdonckt has adopted the grave and not only places flowers there on Veterans Day, but has done extensive research into Wold’s life and family history, including contacting Norwegian relatives.
You can see the website about John Wold here.
It is truly heartwarming to know that there are people caring for the graves, and carrying on the stories of the local soldiers who gave their lives overseas.
