René PETIT Soldier during WWI 56th regiment of artillery Aisne and Belgium campaigns



On the eve of celebrating the armistice day and the 100th anniversary of world war I, let’s have a deep thought for all our soldiers.

They could have been our sons, our brothers, our fathers. Generation gap has placed them to the rank of grand-fathers, then great grand-fathers or uncles.

If sorrow fades away with time, bewilderment grasps us with the horror of such a war. Fear and pain that our soldiers had to endure have turned into a powerful and dull cry – so that we don’t forget.
