HISTORY:

In the autumn of 1944, the Canadians liberated the municipalities south of the Leopold Canal in the Battle of the Leopold Canal.

On October 6, the soldiers of the 7th Canadian Infantry Brigade of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division started the construction of a "Bailey bridge" over the Leopold Canal between Maldegem and Sint-Laureins. A few days later, in the first phase of the "Switchback Operation", the Canadians crossed the channel.

The bridge in question is probably one of the last remaining Bailey bridges from the Second World War still in use. Locally it is known as the "Lievebrug".

I hope you like it
