War Heroes

On 11th and 12th September, we visited the Vauxbuin National Cemetery and the cemetery at Bucy-Le-Long to pay our respects to fallen heroes of The Rifle Brigade. These young men made the ultimate sacrifice during the so-called Great War (1914-1918), losing their lives almost 100 years to the day of our visit. Very emotional!
