Channel 4 Time Team Special 'The Somme's Secret Weapon' 9pm - Thursday 14 April
thread (one of several on the programme about the dig for the Livens Large Flame Projector)
Do we have any more details of this - particularly the attitudes and expectations of the French present at the dig (rather than the authorities)? Presumably no identification was possible?
The two French soldiers that were exhumed from the site by GUARD were initially handed to the CWGC and then on to the relevant French Authorities. We were a little dissapointed when we learnt that they had been buried, without notice, in a French military cemetery locally a few months later. Many of us from the team, and I am sure, locals would have attended their burials.
