Quicksilver Posted 16 February , 2019 Share Posted 16 February , 2019 Good afternoon all. Decided to sign up and utilise, what appears to be, an excellent source of information. I'm going to the Somme in April for the first time in a few years, taking my wife and my Mother in Law (life long ambition to visit the WF). I like to think I am fairly "clued up" having been on and ran a few Battlefield tours in my time. However I am finding certain info a little difficult to track down. Basically, we will be staying within Hamel Village on the Ancre for a few days and I would like to be able to spout some anecdotes about the village. I know that there was advanced dressing stations there and that it was just behind the front lines for most of the time (up to 1918) but I cannot seem to glean much information. Can anyone help? I don't want big long or detailed histories but any anecdotes, photographs which I can use as we walk around the village would be useful. Trench maps showing British trenches? Location of the ADS or any other facility. etc. Really grateful for any help. Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
