Arras to Albert

Arras was the site of many battles during the Great War. Much damage was done to the historic centre of the town which has now been rebuilt in the original style.



We returned to the Arras Memorial in search of John Lisle. For years he was deemed to be missing in action, but recent research has shown that he was found, but is only remembered as a name on the addenda panels. (Unfortunately we couldn’t find his name on the panels.)



We stopped for lunch before Albert within site of the TGV line as it swept across Picardie. One could hear the distant rumble as the high speed trains approached.
