William Orpen - The Butte de Warlencourt

The Butte de Warlencourt

Bob Paterson

The ancient mound of the Butte dominates the northern part of the 1916 Somme battlefield and marks the limit of the BEF advance. Ownership of this important spot recently passed from the Western Front Association to Bob who will outline the latest improvements to the site and give an overview of the fight for the Butte in the autumn of 1916. 

Bob was the first Chair of the WFA Tayside Branch and divides his time between Dundee and Morval on the Somme.
