WALLONIE - Rixensart / Avenue de Mérode.

This card in between all the lovely cards I've received lately.
I got some stamps of TBC-post left (inside BE) so I used them also to see about the cancellation.
I had to go to another village some miles away to put the cards in a TBC PO Box.

This is the result;stamp and cancellation absolutely wrecked (can't remove the sticker without destroying the stamp).
This put's TBC on the same level as Bpost !

The Story about Silvius Brabo (Roman Soldier) is that he had to pay money;like everybody;to pass a bridge over the River De Schelde and wich was guarded by a Giant named Druon Antigoon.
He refused and killed the Giant and cut off his hand and throw it in the River.
This should expain the origin of the name Antwerpen (Hand werpen / Hand Throwing).
