... when she noticed a sign to a memorial for Hill 60 and the 1st Australian Tunneling Company, Greg's Grandfather's (on his Mum's side) unit during WW1. So we went for a look. 1 ATC played a significant role in this battle and many of them, along with British and Germans solders are permanently buried under the hill where they were trapped by cave-ins caused by explosions or accidents while tunneling. Lucky for the Walker/Jenkins families Greg's Granddad, William (Bill) ...

... Cemetery but not one of them had the distance. According to Henry's speedo, we had done nearly 80kms in a very circuitous country lane route but still were only about 30kms from Verdun as the crow flies.
