My name is Carole Laevens and I am a french guide, I am from a small village in the Somme called Etinehem, from there I started to be interested about the First World War. There I discovered that my great grandfather fought during the battle of the Somme and was buried in Rancourt.
After my A level in Albert I went in Amiens during two years for studying about tourism and following this I've been in Boulogne-sur-Mer during one year to be a professional guide "guide conferencier" in France.
After moving in the village of Carnoy-Mametz I was more in the center of the front line on the 1st July 1916. From there I learned more about the Franco-British offensive in 1916. I then gained more knowledge about the Westren front.
