Geocache Description:


Compagnie Magnin: Prise du pont

France

22 Janvier 1871 5h45
La compagnie Magnin se dirige alors vers le pont où elle se heurte aux sentinelles qui sont neutralisées à l'arme blanche.. Passant à côté d'une sentinelle morte, un soldat originaire d’Afrique dont le père avait été tué par les Prussiens coupa une oreille pour prouver en rentrant chez lui qu’il avait bien vengé son père. Il ne se doutait pas que son geste serait l’un des prétextes de la sauvagerie teutonne contre le village et ses habitants.
Le pont est dégagé, il est alors 5 heures 45. La compagnie Magnin traverse le pont et se met en protection à l’autre extrémité.

January 22, 1871 5:45
 The company Magnin then headed for the bridge where she encounters the sentinels that are neutralized with knives .. Turning next to a dead sentry, a soldier from Africa whose father was killed by the Prussians cut off an ear to prove his way home that he had avenged his father. He had no idea that his gesture would be one of the pretexts of Teutonic savagery against the village and its inhabitants. The bridge is cleared, then it is 5:45. The company Magnin crosses the bridge and goes into protection at the other end.
