    The fighting in this area took place on August 15th to 21st, 1914. After the battle the Germans buried the dead of both sides where they fell and marked them with crosses which were replaced in 1916 by the German NCO Ludwig Gebhardt. Today some 41 of these memorials are still on the upper slopes of the hill in Saint Die des Vosges



    The German cemetery Tetes des Faux is 1208m peak to south of Weiss Valley with extensive views of surrounding region. Scene of bitter fighting but despite repeated assualts was held by Germans who builty extensive bunkers, block houses and trench systems on the hillside which were supplied by funicular railways from the valley below.

    London Irish Rifles, the Loos football: This is the football wich the LIR kicked across No Mans Land on September 25th, 1915 as they attacked the German positions in the town of Loos.



    Battle of Belleau Wood: Looking eastwards towards Belleau Wood across le champ Lever from the Lucy le Bocage road. The 3/5 USMC attacked across this field towards the wood on June 6th, 1918 and is where Floyd Gibbons was shot.

    The gateway of Chaetau de Soupir - which was badly destroyed during the war and subsequently demolished in 1917 - served as a casualty clearing station. The village was cleared by the Brigade of Guards on September 14th, 1914. Around that time some heavy fighting took place at the farm of La Cour de Soupir, near the head of the valley north-west of the village. Dressing Stations were established at Chaetau de Soupir and at the farm. The village was in German hands again between November 2nd and 6th, 1914.



    The cemetery at St Symphorien was established by the German Army during the First World War as a final resting place for British and German servicemen killed at the Battle of Mons. Almost unique in its mixture of German and Commonwealth graves - respectively 229 and 284 servicemen buried or commemorated - it includes those of George Ellison of the Royal Irish Lancers and George Price of the Canadian Infantry, who were both killed on November 11th, 1918 and are believed to be the last Commonwealth combat casualties of the war in Europe. More than one hundred soldiers buried at St Symphorien remain unidentified.



    Unexploded shells uncovered by ploughing near Munich Trench Cemetery awaiting collection by the Bomb Squad. British writer Hector Hugh Munro, better known as Saki, was killed by a German snipper in 1916 just to the west of this site.



    Mittel Rehfelsen is a rocky outcrop which was tunneled and fortified by the Germans



    Graveyard at the original site of the village of Fey en Haye on the outskirts of the Bois le Pretre woods. The village was destroyed during the Great War due to its location between French and German lines, in an area of heavy fighting. The village was rebuilt after the war in 1918 close to the site of the original settlement.

    The compass belonged to a Lt Eric Black, aged 24, who was an undergraduate at Keble College Oxford and commissioned into the Lincolnshire Regiment. On May 9th, 1915 they attacked a position known as Rouges Bancs. Black was making his way back from the front line in the evening when he disappeared in the area of this field. The compass was found by the local Mr Fournier in 1992.

    Yo tengo una en el hombro de cuando combatí en el Somme. Me tropecé de la que salía de la trinchera cuando nos dieron la orden de avanzar y caí encima de una botella rota, pero bueno, me levanté rápido y tiré p'alante.
