The War Heritage Institute (WHI) is the national institution for military heritage and remembrance, within the remit of the Minister of Defence. The WHI manages, among others, the Belgian military cemeteries, the Royal Military Museum in Brussels, Fort Breendonk in Willebroek and Bastogne Barracks. In West Flanders the institution is responsible for the Trench of Death in Dixmude and the Command Bunker in Kemmel. In the former barracks at Ypres work is progressing toward a new museum dedicated to post-1945 international conflicts, displaying military vehicles. These are restored and maintained by WHI-volunteers. In Lombardsijde they present, among others, a Gepard, a CVRT Striker and a few M113s in various configurations.
