    ... 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. A local belief developed that WWI would end when the statue toppled. As far as I know, it never did ...

    We visited so many cemeteries, Australian, English and French. Something I wasn't aware of until the Somme was that there were quite ...

    ... I felt very loved and appreciated. We were representing those who did so much for the French during both WW1 and WW2. After nearly getting lost or forgot where we parked the bus we went to another cemetery called Adelaide Cemetery. Where we took many photos with the statues and canola plants/flower.

    ... and word was that "when the virgin fell the war would end." They completely rebuilt the statue and the church is beautiful today.

    The museum had displays set up along the sides of the tunnel with explanations of the trench warfare involved in the battle of the Somme. The Germans were very prepared and the British had many casualties. The French were fighting on another front in southern France. ...
