Herdenkingsmonument HMS Vindictive

In May 2013, the restored bow of the HMS VIndictive was given a prominent place on the east bank of the port of Ostend. During the night of 9 to 10 May 1918, the British attempted to use the HMS Vindictive to block the port of Ostend and thus prevent passage of German submarines to the North Sea. The HMS Vindictive was sunk in the harbour channel of Ostend. This raid cost the British 8 deaths, 10 missing and 29 wounded. Close to the place where the ship was sunk, the memorial is now a silent witness of the Great War. Location: Oostelijke Strekdam 1.
