To read about the BUCQUOY ROAD CEMETERY, which holds most of the casualties from the Battle of Ficheux on 20th May 1940 please click on that link.

The photographs of the village taken during the research trip are set out below. A greater number were taken, given the importance of the village in the history of 70th Infantry Brigade, including some from the sites of German Machine-Gun positions and of the fields in which many of the casualties lost their lives. Hopefully, the images confirm the agricultural nature of the area.

It is hoped, with the assistance of Msr Andre Coilliot, to do more work on the location of the Brigade casualties within the village, and link that to the interment records produced by the then Mayor, Msr LeFebre, who was in change of the burial arrangements. If more information is forthcoming it may be possible to improve the description of the individual photographs.
