... tunnels, which were dark, dank and often flooded. But they were considered high-class accommodations compared to life in the trench. The network of tunnels through the chalk ground was dug by professional miners turned soldiers. The chalk that was unearthed was buried elsewhere at night to avoid detection by the enemy.
