Bray Sur Somme, Christmas 1917

From The Story of the 2/4th Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, by G.K. Rose

After one night at Lechelle the Battalion entrained at Ytrez and moved back to Christmas rest-billets at Suzanne, near Bray.

Huts, built by the French but vacated more than a year ago and now very dilapidated formed the accommodation. In them Christmas dinners, to procure which Bennett had proceeded early from the line, were eaten. And O’Meara conducted the Brigade Band.

There are a number of photographs of interest on the following Web sites:
