... of Arras by the allies on 7th September 1944. There was a large fair and a firework display in the squares..
At just after midnight and there being no obvious signs of any taxi's being available, we managed to 'blag' the chef at the restaurant we had been eating and drinking at, for a lift back to the hotel as walking back wasn't fancied by any of us.

... office. I sat down and started tooling around on the web looking for Fromelles tours when they closed the front door to the office, then this dude said something in French and walked to the second door, I guess he was saying it was closing time. So now I'm out in the town square and its pouring rain. I spied an irish pub across the square, but alas it was closed. So I kept walking around the square and found a cafe that was open. Gods be praised, the waiter speaks ...
