Meet the teams

What was once one man's dream became a whole group's passion!

The story of the Brothers-In-Arms, John and Jim Hunter, did not only move Johan Vandewalle and his excavation team. A group of World War I enthusiasts, consisting of battlefield guides, (amateur) historians and military history writers, were so inspired by the story that they decided to start a non-profit organization to help build the dream.
