Arms of Westkapelle

Tank Wrecks at Westkapelle

After the Allied landings and fighting on the Netherlands island of Walcheren, in early November 1944, large numbers of military vehicles were simply abandoned in and around the village of Westkapelle. Some had become stuck even during the landings, others were actively used in the battle for Walcheren and then just parked in Westkapelle to be rid of them. The majority of these vehicles stood in and around the village for years before they were eventually removed.
