Wounded Belgian sergent Achille MARTIN
Ein bei Aarschot verwundeter belgischer Offizier, wurde von Briten in ein englisches Lazarett gebracht. Bilder seiner Genesung.
My father Achille MARTIN (1896-1982) was named sergent in the Belgian army only a few weeks before the start of the war. He was wounded (a bullet in his foot) at a battle in Aarschot (close to Brussels-Belgium) and transported by British soldiers fighting at his side to an Hospital in Suffolk-UK (Fornham St Martin). Following pictures were taken when he was recovering at the ambulance together with other wounded officers in Fornham St Martin and Bury St Edmunds. Dr. Jacques MARTIN, Heidelberg, Germany
