in Rumes

In Monique's footsteps

This cross-border commemorative circuit leads you in the footsteps of Henriette Hanotte,a young lady from Rumes who, between 1942 and 1944, under the moniker "Monique", brought across the Belgian border into France some 135 allied airmen.

From Rumes (or Bachy), you'll discover one of the escape routes of the " Comète " network of which "Monique" was a part. You'll follow in her footsteps and those of American, English, Australian, Canadian, Polish, French and Belgian airmen (among others), following the evaders' small trails over vast plains from Rumes to Bachy.

In the footsteps of "Monique", enjoy this authentic countryside with its clay soil landscapes that have hardly changed since then.
