Bonjour, citoyens! Am in Vaux-en-AmiƩnois, one of Mephisto's resting places in 1918.

This afternoon I stood on what I calculate to be the spot where Mephisto got stuck during the advance on Villers-Bretonneux, or at least close to it. Right opposite Monument Farm, now known as La Ferme de la Couture.

On Sunday am meeting a local gent who has done a lot of research into Mephisto's stay here in Vaux. It seems he has an intriguing anecdote for me. Stand by for a world exclusive.

Well, the story I was expecting turned out not to be the case. But all is not lost. Our charming hosts had confused it with another episode involving a tank in Vaux-en-AmiƩnois, equally intriguing and not unamusing. Details to follow. Gwyn and Michel might be needed here, for reasons that I shall explain another day.

What is certain is that I now have a 1918 trench map of the area, and have stood, according to Monsieur Nourtier the local historian, on the spot where Mephisto was parked, give or take 100 metres.

Have got quite a bit to do at the mo, so can't give a delivery date but am working on it. Veuillez patienter!
