We are up with the crack and check out of our hotel, it’s Merci and Au Revoir for now Paris. We load our gear into our car and head 140 kilometres through the hills to Villers-Bretonneux.
Even though this memorial site was originally dedicated to WWI veterans it’s is scarred with the attacks from WWII. Bullet holes can be seen through the monument.
It is probably one of the most moving experiences I will ever have, standing here imagining the bloody war that took place and seeing the graves of so many unknown to God. We will forever be indebted to them. May they Rest in Peace.
