Montauban - Somme
This was the scene of an attack led by Captain Wilfred 'Billie' Nevill, who instructed the 8th East Surreys to kick a number of footballs out into no man's land as they went over the top. It is believed Captain Nevill said he would award a prize to the first man to kick a football into the German trenches. Sadly, he died during the attack. Two of the footballs were recovered and are now in museums.
A German machine gunner was found chained to his gun at this location. The only living thing found to be left in Montauben after the action was a fox.
