An exhibition will feature the lives of First World War Belgian refugees through a series of rare paintings and illustrations.

The exhibition later this year at the William Morris Gallery in Forest Road, Walthamstow, will showcase the lives of 250,000 Belgians who sought sanctuary in England.

Its title, 'Help is Better than Sympathy' is taken from a poster designed by artist Frank Brangwyn for the Belgian & Allies Aid League.

Mr Brangwyn is well known for designing First World War propaganda posters, some of which will be on display.

A private viewing is to be held on May 22 from 6pm-8pm and the main public exhibition will run from May 24 to September 14 between 10am and 5pm.

The Belgians made a massive contribution to this country. There is even a Belgian cafe in Woodford these days where you can have Belgian mussels with chips and Belgian beer that will blow your mind as it is so strong.
