  1. Two years ago my wife and I visted the Loos battle field and found the grave of one of my great uncles in Bethune, then we went to the somme battle field and also found his brother’s name listed on the Thiepval memorial. We learned that he had won the Military Medal. We retraced their steps from the war diaries working our way from Albert to Le Sars visitng La Boisselle. All the best with your project.

  4. I have a great interest in the battles of WW1, particularly the Battle of the Somme. Each year for the past 15 years I have visited for the 1st July commemoration events starting with the “service” at Lochnagar. Great to read of the La Boisselle project. This year I shall visit the immediate site following the parade from Lochnagar. I wish you well and will look forward to reading of your progress

  5. To think that one day I’ll be able to visit where my Grt. Uncle, George Maul (pictured 2nd from right back row) served with the 179th Tunnellers, unbelievable!
