Did you know the Butte was on fire in January 1917?

We have just put on the History section of the website an extract from the book 'The 15th Scottish Division 1914-1919' regarding the raid on the Butte at the end of January 1917 which saw the Butte catching fire.

Have a read, its fascinating indeed. The planning being absolutely meticulous including the wearing of women's nightgowns!
