The images shown here have not been catalogued yet and may be used free of charge, provided their source is named. The Volksbund is planning to make the extensive stock of First World War images in its archive available online here soon.
Langemarck is also the site of a German war cemetery where an above-average number of First World War casualties who had volunteered for service have been laid to rest.
