            It has an Orthodox cross on the spire. Is it somewhere in the Balkans may be?

            Comment


              yes in Europe,
              not in the Balkan or Orthodox.

                Surely an Orthodox cross has three crossbars? This one with the circle is typical of Celtic crosses, which leads us to Brittany and certain parts of the British Isles.

                  OK, I'm obviously not an expert on Crosses then.
                  What do we know??
                  We are in Europe, but not in the Baltic, Balkan or Greece and it is not a Orthodox symbol we see.
                  The Celtic Cross puts us in NW Europe, but the trees is not typical of the Northern parts.
                  Brittany may be possible, but I somehow think we are closer to home of the poster. Could there be a Dutch connection here??
                  It looks a bit like a recent puzzle, which was in Belgium and a Memorial of some sort.
                  I think we have to wait for the comments on the above

                    But might not the Netherlands be in NW Europe?
                    Also at least some of those trees appear to be yew, a typical churchyard tree and not averse to the cold.

                    OK, I'm obviously not an expert on Churchyard trees either. I'll stick to Indian Temple trees.

                  yes there is a Dutch Connection with this church.
                  no it's not Belgium.but the one in Belgium was of i had discharged my container there and saw the Atomium,and there on GE came the monument in sight.

                    Thijs,when you say there is a connection with Nederland,does it mean it is IN Nederland?
                    And by the way,is there a link with a Boer memorial?

                  yes Yves,it is IN Nederland.
                  so thats exit for 99,9% of the world countries.

                  nothing with a Boer (farmer) memorial.(as far i know)
                  don't know what you ment by it too,so please explain.

                    I was wrong Thijs.I suspected a cemetery in memory of the dutch emigrants to South Africa died during the war of Boers.You know for a Frenchman the word boer does'nt mean farmer but South African Dutch.
                    Then could you tell us if there are military graves near the church.

                    Yes, Yves, the same in English, although through Thijs I realised that it is just the word for farmer. But to the English generally Boer means the Dutch emigrants to S.A.

                    but warn't the dutch Farmers ''Boeren'' the most immigrated people to SA?

                  that i didn't know about the word Boer.

                  i don't know about the graves,but maybe there are some,but not as in a field of honour.

                      Well, I've been busy doing other things on the web, and admit was not getting anywhere - though I've not given up by any means. As to the others, they're probably still suffering from overeating day after day, especially that Ralf and that Mark!

                        Nah - I started to search for chapels in the Netherlands - then quickly realised that the chapel density is even higher than the population density! They're not short of a few!
                        Cheers,
