New article added to the Post 1914 history section

18 June 2019

We said the Butte had a story to tell, so good news, the stories have started.

Apart from the erection of the Information Boards on the Butte itself, we have added two articles to this website in the 'history section post 1914' giving details of Roland Bradford's report following the November attack and also just added by Bob is an account of the South African Brigade's exploits in the area mid October 1916. Reading about the South Africans, it seems the winner by a proverbial mile was the Somme mud. The track off the Eaucourt L'Abbaye - Le Sars road to the Butte takes you past where all this action took place.

Have a look. Its very interesting indeed.
