Centenary of the Great War
The French railway company showed just how useful it could be during the war. In addition to transporting troops and supplies, the railways could also carry heavy weaponry, clothing, parcels, horses and food to the front.
Longueau thus became of great importance for logistics, with the railway station receiving 172 trains on a regular basis in order to meet the needs of the front. Solders from all over the world crossed through the stations of Amiens and Longueau, as they went to and from the front. Some left the front on leave, others were wounded and were being evacuated to the nearest hospitals.
On the 1st and 2nd October, come and learn more about this important part of our history!
