Visited with Dweeb and Rug.

After a fair walk through a forest we found what we were looking for, an old chalk quarry that was used (as far as we know) as a medical station in WW1.

It wasn't very deep at all, but an amazing place regardless...

A medal, not the Légion d'honneur as we first thought though, I'll try and find out what it is...
