Somme Run 1st July 1990

On this day, 1990, alongside EPKH and JCL, supported by ASC and CGJO, sustained by a long and eventful night in Albert, three of us ran the length of the front line. We started from Serre at 7.30pm. It was wet, windy and sunny. Afterwards, we dined at the memorable Hotel De La Paix in Albert, before a strike had us held up in the ferry terminal car park while England defeated Cameroon in the World Cup and we emptied the boot of stubbies!

Newfoundland Park. I would like it on record that EPKH cheated at Beaumont-Hamel!
