View looking down rue Ernest Mallard from the vicinity of Gramp's billet

Our best guess at Gramp's billet at 83 rue Ernest Mallard.

This building and the sign reading "Biscuit Leroy" is visible in the background of a picture of Gramp's tent camp taken in 1918. (See next photo). The actual location is in the town of Orval, just across the river Cher from St. Amand.

Here is the building in October of 1918. In the foreground are the tents of Gramp and his fellow officers of the 301st Supply Train.
