The Wolves in Wolves project recognised well established connections Wolverhampton already has with the Netherlands, in particular the Princess Irene Brigade who come to Wolverhampton every November for the remembrance service for the Dutch soldiers buried at Jeffcock Rd cemetery.
After discussion with the Dutch embassy wolves in Wolves made contact with Stef Fridael, a Dutch Contemporary artist born in Indonesia. He studied Graphic Art in Eindhoven, Netherlands, and then joined the Princess Irene Brigade. After 35 years of military service he has returned to art and creativity.
Stef has been to Wolverhampton many times with the Stichting Brigade en Garde Prinses Irene of the Dutch Army commemorating those World War Two soldiers buried in Jeffcott Road Cemetery.
