Verdun: a tribute to the Firemen of the Great War

Today, the town of Verdun, situated in the Meuse region of France, is one of the symbols of the First World War. The Battle of Verdun lasted almost ten months, causing the deaths of more than 300,000 people and wounding 412,000, on both the French and German sides. To mark the centenary of the Armistice, a ceremony was held at the Douaumont Ossuary to pay homage to the members of the Fire Brigade who lost their lives.
