Abbe Henrique,Edelmann,Moi. the Bois the Malancourt not far from Mort Homme at the North west of Verdun and on the left bank of the River Meuse was the scenario on the 20th March 1916 of a strong German attack with Artillery fire ,blowing of mines and use of flammable liquids from 7AM to 16 PM ,then the destroyed trenches were assaulted frontally and at the rear with use of the cover of dense smoke and throwing hand grenades. At the end the Germans captured the Bois, two bataillons of the 111th Infantry regiment ,nearly all the 258 Infantry regiment ,the General commanding the Brigade ,the two Colonels and all the Brigade Staff , about 3000 men . It was a severe blow to the French Army. regarding the pic of two years later , the three men on it belongs to the Military Health Service. the Abbe is a Priest ,the two others wears Red Cross armbands.On the fifth pic appears again the Abbe , without the coat he uses on the first pic .with him is Edelmann and the Captain Larroux. the pic also says: ilegible ,first line Avrocourt,2hours from ilegible. the Bois de Malancourt was correctly named Avracourt _ Malancourt. Excuse Me , I wrote Avracourt, It is AVOCOURT .
