- Website Commonwealth War Graves Commission - Web Site (unknown url) "Eterpigny was captured by the enemy in March 1918, and recovered at the end of the following August; in October 1918, it was H.Q. Fourth Army. The Extension was a row of graves, begun by the enemy in March 1918, when United Kingdom and German soldiers were buried, and completed at the end of August when Australian soldiers were buried by their comrades. The German graves were removed in 1924. There are now 27, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, 9 are unidentified. The Extension covers an area of 409 square meters. Our Albert is one who was identified so there will be an actual grave.
Eterpigny is a small village 2 kilometres south of Peronne on the N17. The Extension, where the war graves are situated, is behind the Communal Cemetery and is signposted from the centre of the village."
