September Centenary News from The Somme
Posted on 30th September 2016 by Julie and David Thomson in General News.
September should announce the beginning of autumn and the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness but the summer weather continues here with generally lovely days and tea still being drank in the garden after our guests’ hard days battlefield visits.
The Somme Centenary has continued to inspire families of those loved ones who served and returned or served and died on the Somme to visit from near and far, as well as those with a general interest in the events here. September 1916 was another notable month of planned offences within the overall Somme battle, as the allied forces tried to push forward. Remembrance here is everyday. We continue to feel very honoured to play a small part in helping families who wish to pay their respects at a specific place or specific time. We recount some of their stories here.
