... A third brother, James, had also fought at Fromelles but had been injured. What a horrible tragedy for one family. The last two exhibits broke my heart. The first was the ID tag of a soldier. The tag was found by the germans and forwarded to the British army. The army returned it to the family with a letter, that was also on display. The letter, or note really, was so cold. Essentially, we have this piece of Private Creswells personal effects, if we find anymore, we'll ...

... Train was cool but we were travelling backward the whole time. I guess I'd have to travel from Arras to Paris to go forward. The countryside was picturesque. So pretty here.

... then David (after his run) joined us. They are an interesting couple with a good sense of humour and they were going to have a BBQ at the end of the jetty where we were moored. We were invited to join them to put our meat on with their rack of lamb. It was a very pleasant evening.

We wanted to see Mons but you had to walk back to near the Aldi to get the bus and that was half way or a taxi was €10 each way. In the end we didn’t go, which was a ...

... the Allied forces. It is often referred to as the moment when Canada, as a nation, was forged. This doesn’t downplay the considerable risk, planning, bravery and execution involved in taking the ridge. Two earlier attempts by the Allied forces had failed in 1914 and 15, resulting in heavy casualties, partly because the German defensive positions were highly fortified.

We woke early and tea at 6.30/7pm and were ready for the off at 8.15. We wanted to stock up on French wine but don't know when the shops open on a Sunday as John been up to Lidl and no opening hours displayed.

We set off and our first lock was just outside where we had moored but there were no lights showing. They were supposed to open at 8.30 and it was now 8.40, so we tied up ...
