Cheerio Darling: Commemoration Lt.C.G. Boothby - Zillebeke - 27/04/2022
On April 27, Geoff Boothby writes his last letter to his 'darling Edith'. His suitcase is packed because he is going home. That evening he rushes to the aid of a colleague in the dark corridors of the tunnel system under the Bellewaerde ridge. It would be his last adventure…

Together with the Talbotousians and the people of the Bellewaerts VZW Geoff Boothby & the other tunnelers who lost their lives in the early morning of April 28, 1916 were commemorated on Wednesday 27 April 2022.

After a historical explanation followed a short ceremony at the R.E. Cemetery Railway Wood
