  1. Afternoon all,

    I am one of the founder members of a current ongoing archeological project on the Somme in France where we are studying a major British and French WW1 tunnel system. Website linky:

    La Boisselle Study Group | La Boisselle Study Group

    We have in the last few weeks gained access to a large section of lateral and offensive galleries, 80 feet deep, dug by RE Tunnellers in 1915/16. The tunnells are in an amazing state of preservation but we have strict safety guidelines when at depth for when we want to explore the system. Up until now during exploration no one has been aloowed out of line of sight. Our group has a lot of support from various serving soldiers RE and RLC and so far we have been loaned a number of field telephones for use during our phase of excavations.

    Can you use the current army field telephone in series with more than 2? So far we have only used 2 (Surface to shaft chamber). If not, is there an operators board that more than one can be run off?

    Any hints or advice would be welcome.

    Many thanks
