    ... Which was a great goodness that day. Albert was heavily bombed and shelled in WWI. There is a lovely basilica, Notre Dame de Brebieres, which was only built in 1885-1897, in the center of town, which was about 2/3rds destroyed. It was topped by a statue of the Mary with the baby Jesus, which was tipped over until it was horizontal, suspended above the town.

    ... through Albert, the main logistic centre for the Somme offensive. It had a pre WW1 population of 7 343 and was only 2.5km behind the frontline at the start of the Somme campaign.
