It must be a terrible thing having to move to another country not knowing what was happening to your country and your home.

I can't think of anything worse,having to leave most things behind ,only taking what you can carry, knowing no one, not even speaking the language,it would be a nightmare.

I thought the first world war was for the defence of Belgians in the first place. If so, I don't feel in the slightest bit sorry for their hardships. It seems the ones that came here got a much better deal than our men who went to defend their hopeless piece of soil.

And they aren't lost anyway, they were sent home. Something we have forgotten how to do.

If they try to send anyone back to there native country today ,they start screaming about there human rights, what about our rights of refusal.

Before anyone starts moaning that this thread is Racist, It's not. Just Nationalist. I would defend that right of voice to the end. Something our useless Government should do.
