Note the vehicle used to collect WW I munitions in this video about Verdun.

When I lived in Verdun as a teenager gardening, was limited to digging no more than a few inches/cm. Walking across some fields was discouraged, perhaps forbidden, though I did it a few times.

Tomorrow is the 100 anniversary of Leopold Lojko taking a wrong turn; not his fault for he had not been told of the change of route. The repercussions continued for many decades.
