De Pondfarm - Stijn Butaye, who lived at Pondfarm, gives us an insight to the battles in that area during WW1. He writes - From my childhood onwards I grew up on a farm that was situated in the Ypres front area of World War 1, an area that had to endure a lot of battles. Our farm at that time was known as Pondfarm. As a result of this my first hobby came into being: collecting 'war relics'. From 2003 onwards I started my own collection made up by the war finds coming from our farmlands. Also view his other sites: St-Julien 14-18  Poelcapelle Area 1914-1918
