20/12/2012 - Belgium has had quite a few very successful pigeon fanciers before the war of ’40-’45, especially in the period between 1925 and 1939. Before that period we also had the famous Karel Wegge, who died in 1897.
27/10/2012 - In 1904 Theo Vandevelde exchanged a few pigeons with his fellow teacher Louis Linghier from Oudenburg. He received several pigeons of two separate couples, including the famous ‘Snak’, which was paired to a hen of Constant Deherdt, a fancier from Berchem.
19/10/2012 - 16 December 1951. The club of Corbisier at the Place Fontainas in “A la Cour de Bruxelles” is packed with people. This is the same club where pigeons of Karel Wegge were sold 53 years ago.
