WWI Inscriptions

Today we will take a trip back in time and learn about inscriptions carved by soldiers during World War I.

A headlamp cuts through the darkness of a rough-hewn passage 100 feet underground to reveal an inscription: “James Cockburn 8th Durham L.I.”

It’s cut so clean it could have been left yesterday. Only the date next to it — April 1, 1917 — roots it in the horrors of World War I. Learn more.
