Memorial Leon Divoy en Michel Donnet

This monument located in front of the entrance to the pedestrian tunnel, near the Prince Leopold home in Sint-Jansbergdreef in Overijse commemorates the exploitation of the Belgian military airmen Leon Divoy and Michel Donnet.

The text on the monument: "They were able to fly to England on the night of 4 to 5 July 1941 on board a tourism aircraft that was rested after long months of preparations and dangers. They departed from this place called Terblok in spite of being guarded by German sentries".

In Great Britain, Leon Divoy and Michel Donnet joined the RAF.
