Blangy

May 14th, 1918 – Full diary entry:

“Rained all night. Walked to Blangy, France. There is a prison camp there. 300 Fritz.

Went to Blangy camp to Y.M. concert.

On Breste River.

Blangy is 60 miles from front.”


I can’t find much about the American or British camps near Blangy-sur-Bresle. The village itself dates back at least to the mid-9th century and was an important stronghold with walls, turrets, gates and moats for defense.
