Were there any motorcycles used by the military in France during WW1 that you have photos of? If so, I would love to see them.

It is too bad there are not more showing the death and destruction, although the picture of the French soldier looking over the cemetery should suffice. Maybe it will help people understand just what a waster war actually is.

Let’s hope we never let our ‘leaders’ manipulate us into this ever again.

Thanks so much for sharing them with the public. As a student of the French army in the Great War, I’m greatly interested in seeing these and hope to see more as you continue to digitize them. Will you be posting them to this blog as you do so?

Best reagrds,
John
