“ Do forgive but do not forget “: these words are mostly mentioned every time a war memorial is inaugurated to recall one of so many cruel or heroic events during World War 2. The construction of a memorial monument, after exactly sixty years, for fourteen young men, (thirteen of them lost their lives when their two Lancaster bombers were shot down) is a proof that this sentence is not an empty slogan... 

Thanks to Frank



 Jette (Bruxelles), le 31 janvier 2009. Nous voici donc face à un avion dans un (grand) jardin de l’agglomération bruxelloise par une belle journée ensoleillée et particulièrement froide. La propriétaire de cette machine volante, Mirelle Titeca, nous en fait les honneurs.

De Caters exhibition at the Museum


15.10.2008 - 28.02.2009

In the magical setting of the Royal Museum of the Army, the exhibition shows how many authors have drawn inspiration from history and military techniques.  In visiting the exhibition, the public will go through all the collections of the Museum.  Visitors will discover original and amusing showcases of items of the collections and how they are reflected in the comic strips.  The two dimensions of the comic strip are thus juxtaposed to the real world.
