Jo’s Monday Walk
Probably the driving force behind my trip to France
and the Western Front Battlefields of World War I
was to visit the village of Courcelette, however briefly.
It was near Courcelette that my Grandfather’s
superior officer had mentioned Bill’s bravery,
under fire, in his diary.
This diary extract, is one the only things I have
of my Grandfathers possessions.
And then it is probably a copy of a copy.
Even though I had found Courcelette on Google…
I was still surprised at it’s size.
Therefore our visit was a drive through and…
we were soon on the other side of town…
