After looking around the French bivouac on Friday, we spent time in the Allied one on Saturday. There was less drilling going on here and the atmosphere here seemed a bit less hectic; perhaps that's because they had done the battle once...
The first few pictures are from a remembrance parade, including a very heartfelt two minutes silence which we came across. A very impressive display.
