Taken in Touraine...

This is a photograph of a lintel over a window in a house "La Maison du Poilu" in the village of Bossée in Touraine.

The front of the house also has a soldier with the dates 1914 - 1918 carved below it - it is apparently the work of a then, local stonemason and was done around 1920. We have no further information as to why it was done or what event it may portray..
