We visited only about a hundred meters of the tunnel system but it definitely gave us an idea of what it would have been like. These tunnels were connected to the communication trenches in the rear and the front-line trenches. It was in these tunnels that a large number of the troops amassed, out of sight of the Germans, the night before the battle. These tunnels were also used to ...
