Did not go underground today but took a trip to the Somme area instead.


I went for a special reason, as not long ago I discovered I have a Great Uncle that was killed in the First World War.


I know this is not related directly to my tunnel project that this Blog was created for. However, he was family, a Kiwi that gave his life for his country so I would like to have him remembered. His name was Percival Alfred Brooker and he was killed in action on the 2nd of September 1918 near Bancourt.


Above ground today was very sunny.
