My name is Patrick and I’ll be your private battlefield guide during your Flanders
I was born in 1974 and grew up in the middle of Flanders Fields. Joined the Belgian
Armed Forces at the age of 18 and earned my parachute wings & commando dagger in
the Para Commando Regiment at the age of 20. Four years later I became a parachute
instructor. I trained and participated in international exercises all over and served
tours in Lebanon and Afghanistan.
Being born on Flanders Fields and in relation to my profession as a soldier, I developed
a passion for “the Great War” over the years. Starting a few years ago with guiding
Canadian friends in the Ypres Salient , I recently realised my own guiding project.
Sharing my passion with others, enjoying the planning, research, guiding....doesn’t
feel like a job to me. I’m sure you will notice this, together with my military background,
in my guiding work. I like to keep my tours very small (max of 6 people)
and on a personal footing.
