    A smile in this sad landscape because of history is the "Steenakker molen" (= stone ackre windmill). It has been destroyed like everything else in the first worldwar, but was rebuilt after. The Germans nicknamed the windmill in the first months of the war as the "Totenmuehle" (Windmill of the dead) as for the many casualties that fell around it in the first battles of October 1914 in this part of the becoming frontline.

    Windmill restored, what happened not forgotten

    Rising high above the fields that surround Sint juliaan is the Canadian Forces Memorial. Different from all the other monuments in the Ieper Saillant, this silent column has a sence of artistic beauty. On the column one sees a soldier that holds his face down in moarning. F. Clemeshaw created it in 1921 and on it one can read "Rest on your arms reversed".
    Here it was that 3.000 Canadians were killed in the world's first gas attack on larger scale.

    Sint Juliaan is one of many stops along the "In Flanders Fields" car route. This 82 kilometers long drive through and around Ieper shows all mayor sites that are connected to the fierce battles around here in between 1914 and 1918. It is available through internet on the website of Westtoer as well as in the local tourist informations.

    Cemetries and memorials are well pointed out

    Like in the other villages in Flanders, in Sint Juliaan too one can see them almost everywhere. Small crosses, chapels of little houses of prayer on junctions or along roads through the fields and acres. It is a special thing to admire in these surroundings and always give me a kind of warm and protected feeling.

    Favorite thing: You find this Canadian war monument at Vancouver Corner (Kerselarekruispunt), which is the crossing of the Brugseweg and the Zonnebekestraat at St Juliaan.

    St Juliaan is a parish of Langemark. Langemark which is of course well known for its German cemetery. So whenever you are visiting the German cemetery, it might be a good idea to come and see this beautiful Canadian monument too.
