Back in Plugstreet

Monday, July 21st, 2014

The team assembled outside the Auberge at 9am today. This year we are investigating two sites behind the front line, one a point marked on the maps from 1917 onwards, the other situated on the highest land in Allied hands prior to the Battle of Messines.

On of our two trenches in the grounds of La Hutte Chateau, with a curious spread of cinders and debris from the building.

The other trench has also revealed a small amount of demolition rubble and evidence of communication wire.

In the woods we have opened two trenches, one in search of the light railway, the other in search of the feature on the maps.

    So wonderful that you are back over in Plugstreet. I wish I was there! Good to see so many familiar faces in the photos. Today is the anniversary of Great Uncle Alan’s funeral service. It is now 3 years since I met so many of you. Fond Regards to all. Kim
