St.Mihiel – Bois Pernosse

 

Between St-Mihiel and Apremont la Forêt, the Forêt Domaniale de Gobessart hides many traces of the fighting that took place there. Trenches, bunkers, a German cemetery.

One of the lesser known traces is a German communication tunnel close to the front lines, built by the Bayerische Mineur Kompagnie 1. The main entrance, which has a beautiful inscription, has collapsed, but two side entrances can still be accessed, altough the tunnel is not completely accessable anymore.
