MDPMicahDominicParsons Posted 30 May , 2020 Share Posted 30 May , 2020 Hello everyone, I have been a keen visitor to The Old Somme Battlefields and I wanted to request support in requesting permission on walking a piece of land where my Great Grandfather fought and died. I have been privileged to perform as a guest soloist in Assevillers where my Great Grandfather, Henry Nichols is buried and following this concert, I wrote to the local marie to request help and support but I am unsure if my letter (written in French) ever reached this destination. I commissioned a graphic recreation of the trench map around this area and I would give anything to walk those fields which I have researched from the past few years instead of viewing them from afar. The piece of land which I want to walk on is opposite La Maisonette and I would feel much better requesting the official owners permission rather than trespassing. I wondered if anyone had any advice or support to help me in this issue? I hope that when this period is all over that I shall be able to return to France to these hallowed grounds. Many Thanks Micah Dominic Parsons Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
