When the German Army unleashed the first poison chlorine gas attack in WW1, the Canadians bravely held the front line and in just two days, over 2000 died. Marking their efforts is The Brooding Soldier, a 10metre tall white granite column, at the top of which is a solemn, downward looking bust of a soldier. Found in Sint-Juliaan, the soldier is bowed, standing in the direction from which the chlorine arrived.
