Fort Tavannes

This fort was located not far from the front-line. Therefore it was constant fire from the Germans. The fort was not armed with any artillery but was mainly used as a garrison and a hospital. At the end of the war the French forces started to dig tunnels under the fort, out to so called "pamards" (see more details under diary, day 2). These tunnels are today in very bad condition and I do not recommend anyone to go inside.

In the tunnels.

A lot of old things could still be found.

The tunnel continues.

A big hole. There were a couple of these around the fort.
