The Memorial Garden
Meditate within the memorial garden created in homage to Augustin Trébuchon, the last soldier killed during the Great War.
Born on 30 May 1878 in Lozère, he was a modest shepherd before becoming a Private First Class. With a dependent family, he was exempted from the war. Nevertheless, he enlisted in 1914 with the 415th Infantry Regiment as a messenger. He would die shot in the head on 11 November at 10:45 AM, or 15 minutes before the bugle signalled the end of hostilities.
A space for meditation and reflection
Upon leaving the clearing, stroll about the memorial garden created in memory of Augustin Trébuchon, the last soldier killed during the Great War. There, you will find tombs arrayed in an arc around a monument bearing the inscriptions “1870, 1914, 1940, foreign operations” commemorating French soldiers killed on foreign battlefields.
