Like many young Belgians, 12-year-old Paul Delahaye was thrilled by the arrival of the American liberators. After the war, je collected memorabilia connected with the battle, bought the barn where Lieutenant Cook died and created a museum dedicated to this American hero. Paul Delahaye died in 2013 but his children are among those who maintain this unique collection.
May 2019 edit: the museum is being renovated but guided tours can still be organised. Contact the museum for information.
