Inscriptions by WWI soldier J.G. Gibb, 2nd Highland Light Infantry, are seen on the rock in underground caves accessible by small spiral stairs in the village's church at Bouzincourt, northern France, July 13, 2015. Neglected for decades, underground caves in a small village in France's Somme valley contain a treasure trove of hundreds of engravings by World War One Canadian and British soldiers as they sought refuge from German assaults. War researchers say the engravings in the chalky rocks of Bouzincourt, which range from inscriptions of a soldier's name to crudely sculpted flags and hearts, offer a powerful insight into the thoughts of those caught up in the Somme Offensive, one of the bloodiest battles of the 20th century. Their significance in war history has only just started to emerge thanks to the work of researchers like Jeffrey Gusky, a U.S. medic who for the past 20 years has gathered images for a photo project called "The Hidden World of WWI", and local volunteers who, encouraged by the upswell of interest in the war during last year's centenary of its start, have started offering more regular tours on a request basis.

German President Joachim Gauck (2nd R) greets Metropolitian Augoustinos of the Greek Metropolitanate of Central Europe (L) German Cardinal Reinhard Marx (L) Bishop Heinrich Bedford-Strohm (3rd L) and Diradur Sradaryan, priest of the Armenian Apostolic Church (R) after making a speech during an Ecumenical service marking the 100th anniversary of the mass killings of 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman Turkish forces, at the cathedral in Berlin April 23, 2015. Gauck on Thursday condemned the massacre of 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman Turkish forces a century ago as "genocide", a term that the Berlin government had long rejected. He used the word in a speech to mark the 100th anniversary of what most Western scholars and two dozen governments regard as a genocide against an Armenian population that flourished in what is now modern Turkey. Turkey vehemently denies the charge. REUTERS/Fabrizio Bensch
