During the turn of the soldiers during the turn of the century, the families of the 'lotelingen' received a glass walking stick as evidence.
This was hung in a visible location during the military service of the loteling, such as, for example, above a fire or in another visible place in the house.
This to inform the visitors that a man at the front fought in this house.

Upon returning home from the soldier, the glass stick was broken ritually.
The stick really meant that the soldier had died at the front.
However, due to the uniqueness of the stick, it was often not possible to break but broke a few pieces at the bottom of the stick.
This glass loteling stick is in perfect condition outside the bottom of some broken pieces.
