Street names updated

Finally! I had hoped to finalize this work during the end of the year, but it just now got done. The pages with street names have been redone, so the lay-out doesn’t change anymore (there were some issues with some browsers).

From now on I’ll focus to add some more streets! Foreseen this month and/or next month.

New: Videos

The last day of the month brings another novelty to the website, namely a VIDEO page! After a lot of searching, I found some interesting videos on YouTube and wanted to share them with you in an easy way. Well, all of them can be found on this page. Have you seen interesting videos, please let me know!

I hope to find some time to put an update online in the next month!

2018: a first update … a first digital booklet!

Dear visitor,

by now the new year is already 15 days ‘old’, so time for a first update. I’ve put a digital booklet about the bombardment of the OL Lady Visition Institute on May 28 1944. The quality is not optimal, but I had to do it with scans that I have received. I’m still looking for the original booklet, so if you woukld run into it, please let me know.

During my vacation I have improved some other things:

  1. Changing photos and an update banner on the welcome page;
  2. Changing photos on the main page of History and Street Names;
  3. Changing photos + a Google map on the main page of Buildings Monuments, Locations, Museums and Disappeared;
  4. New buttons in Street Names + a number of renewd tables (not all are done).

Hopfully you will find these changes an improvement as well.

The last update of 2017

It’s done! I won’t be publishing anymore updates this year. The latest new pages are:

I’ll be doing some retouches like:

  • Redoing the pages of the Street names (sometimes there are issues when looked at them via Microsoft Edge)
  • Make postcard pages of Streets/squares via the new gallery and remove the old ones
  • Replacing a number of photos
  • Removing the Photo gallery

And yes, starting on December 07 there will be snow on the site…

Update of info over Heppen

Well I’m happy to announce that Heppen has been a little more present on the website. These updates I’ve put through:

  1. In History: the History of Heppen
  2. In Buildings: the Châlet D’Asdonck
  3. In Disappeared:
    1. The mill of Heppen
    2. The Old Brewery

Next year I would like to put information over the ‘Schans’ on the website and maybe I’ll get some more ideas from left or right.

The end of the year…

The end of the year is coming close and as every year I’m having a look on what’s new on the site. And as so many years I come to the conclusion that I wanted to do much more  😥

Lately it has been very silent here indeed and the cause for this was the fact that I got  1200 ‘new’ old cards in my possession and  I was looking/sorting out/ scanning them. Maybe you’ve noticed that the number of cards in the POSTCARDS GALLERY has risen a lot (almost 1500)  😀

But, what will i do before the end of the year? Well underneath you find my plan:

    • History of Heppen will be added.
    • New page for the different subjects will be created and the menu (leftside) will disappear.
    • The Châlet d’Asdonck will be added.
    • The Dunes of Hechtel will be added.
    • The Mill of Heppen will be added..
    • The old brewery will be added..
    • My references: out of which literature / websites does the most of the information on this website come.

So yes, still a lot of work to do. On the page UPDATES  you can always follow the progress.

Do you have any other ideas or informations which could be interesting, then please let me know via the CONTACTFORM.

With ‘Kampse’ greetings,

Bigger update: locations

Before the holidays, I wanted to expand the new part of the locations. Because my job was a little less demanding I also succeeded. So from now on you will find on the locations page:

I still have some more ideas to work out, but first it’s time for vacation!

Another small update

It seems to become a good month: again I managed to get a small update done. I wanted to do monthly updates, but it just ain’t possible (yet)!

This time I’ve updated the page with Commanders of Camp Beverlo since WW II:

  • New commander was added
  • Missing photos were added

In the mean time I’m trying to get the page of Beverlo Canal ready in the section Locations!


Posted in Update

New section started: LOCATIONS

Before the vacation I’ve put a new section online: LOCATIONS

Momentarely only the Military Airfield is available (old postcards included), but also the following locations will follow:

  • the Royal Parc
  • the Canal
  • the Shooting Range
  • the Dunes

Postcard collection – New subjects

These as well were planned since long: to bring online some new subjects: (click on the card to go to the corresponding album)

The Inspection:
The Officers’ mess of the Cavalry:

By now 1062 cards are online. This isn’t everything out of my collection, which surely isn’t the biggest one (onfortunately 🙂 ) but it might be 1 of the most accessible!

Are you also looking for old post cards of Leopoldsburg – Camp Beverloo? Have a look at my shop on
