This bottle was recovered in a old French dugout from the area of the Thiaumont Redoubt,west of Fort Douaumont the June-October 1916 battlefield in Verdun.

    On the 12th June 1916, this entrenched French position was a part of the terrain forming a salient west of Fort Douaumont, known as the "Thiaumont Redoubt". The Germans, planned to capture this location prior to launching their main offensive on the 23rd June 1916. The Germans captured the redoubt eventually after many weeks of fighting and massive casualties on both sides. On the 19th August they finally cleared the redoubt of all French soldiers then they fortified it and it was on the 24th October 1916 that it was finally re taken again by the French Army.
