This kennel, guided by seriousness and competence, was thus in full flight and success at the moment of the 1939 war.
Sadly the 1940-1945 period was as hard for Ecaillon as it was for other breeders. The great winners Gladiateur, Glaneur, Ideal and Ivan de l'Ecaillon vanished, as well as some bitches. The kennel kept Nervian de l'Ecaillon. He carried all its hopes because he was then considered the most successful Malinois in all Ecaillon production. BBA p57
