Other comments :
There are 66 different designs in the Flames series which were woven by Neyret Freres from 1916 - 1919, each depicting the result of a bombardment in France or Belgium during the 1914 - 1918 World War.
From the moment when it was occupied by the Germans in August 1914, Péronne became a crowded centre of military activity and logistical support, particularly during the Battle of the Somme. Despite 8 months of heavy French artillery bombardment it was held by the Germans until their withdrawal to the Hindenburg Line in March 1917.
Occupied once again in the final German advance, in March 1918, the town was finally recaptured by the 2nd Australian Division on 2 September 1918.
In November 1916, in the ocean of mud created by weeks of torrential rain, the French offensive died out at the foot of the fortified hill of Mont-Saint-Quentin which was finally retaken by the Australians on 31 August 1918.
