My in-laws recently bought me "Bataille des frontieres,Bataille de la Marne". by Lt.Col.Jean Charbonneau then chief of the machine-gun section of the 7e RIC during their action at St.Vincent and their fighting retreat. Of particular interest to me were the specific descriptions of locations, which has allowed me to "follow his tracks" back across the Chiers and Meuse.
On my journey, out of curiosity I followed a sign to "Monuments 14-18", near the village of Luzy. Hidden in a forest was a "disused" cemetery which had contained the bodies of French and German soldiers, since re-interred elsewhere. Built by the Germans during the war, it has been renovated, also at German expense.
With the temperature in the thirties I arrived at the site and could just make out the old entrance at the edge of the forest, up a field track:
At the entrance of the forest the small circular cemetery could be seen
A real oasis of cool tranquility where it was easy to gather your thoughts and remember.....
