Interesting photos Mathieu, it's not how I imagined it all! I did like the 'then' and 'now' photos of the hotel and bridge; always interesting to see the differences between the two.
In memory of John Bardgett (15309 L/Cpl.), 11th Border Regiment who died 1st July 1916.

Hello all,

a new picture of Incheville
Image
The interesting part is on the left of the photo, where you can see the factory bike "Maillard", opposite the road "Canard Musicien" and on the back of the church.
The highest house in the village is the town hall

Thats brilliant!! The Major Hopkinson ( second page) it refers to as being brought back wounded was the father of one of the committee members of The Kendal Border Regiment Memorial Fund . I'll pass it on to him and I know he will be delighted.
His father lost an eye as a result of the wound, but apparently was always annoyed that he had to go for a medical examination every year to requalify for his pension ( perhaps they thought the eye might have mysteriously grown back back itself?!!!)
Thank you again,
Regards Paul.

Hello everyone,

Below is a picture of the bridge called "PONT ROUGE" between Incheville and Beauchamps, which was defended by the 4th Border Regiment in 1940

Hello all,

new pictures of Incheville:

These are old pictures from the village taken from the heights of the village

Image
on this picture you can see the CANARD MUSICIEN (behind the plant in the foreground) and guess the view from the windows

Image
on this picture you can see on the left the village hall and notice the beauty of the church

Image
on this picture you can see in the background, just behind the pond, a small house, imagine on the right of this house PONT ROUGE.
This photo is very interesting because it allows us to identify and make themselves more readily appreciate the view from the CANARD MUSICIEN and PONT ROUGE

Image
on this picture you can see in the foreground the Headquarters of Border Régiment during the Battle


I find these pictures very interesting because they allow us to locate places, and the atmosphere in 1940.

Best regards
