Albert and The Somme, France   Leave a comment

We made a brief trip to Albert, a village almost destroyed by the bloody battle of the Somme during WW1.  This was also the first time we wild camped (see a previous blog for details)  Here are few of my pictures.  More info about the Battle of the Somme is here.

I’m currently reading an amazing book called Somme Mud, about an Australian solider who fought at the Somme. It’s not light reading!
