The Battle of the Dunes is a forgotten battle. Very few people know that Nieuwpoort was part of the plans for the Passchendale offensive in the summer of 1917. This was pre-empted by the very first German mustard gas attack. Nieuwpoort’s vital sluices were saved by Scottish regiments at a great loss of life.
