Your historic documents will be in invaluable.

We take this opportunity to ask for any documents, photos, objects or memories, preserved by the grandchildren, great grandchildren or friends of period that you would agree to lend us or to allow us to photograph or to scan.

In 1917, the soldiers were accommodated by the inhabitants and in various places. Some soldiers engraved graffiti on stones, in attics or in barns. Thank you for informing us about it, we would like to make a catalogue to show it to the visitors.

Any ‘US’ or ‘USA’ marked objects have their importance. They could live again through the exhibition. We can help you to identify them if needed.
