In 1918 - Easter was also on March 31st. In a letter John Gault Stevenson wrote while stationed at Camp Genicart in Bordeau.

Easter Sunday was very very wet – as all Easters’ should be – the French make a big day of it - & the churches are thronged all day long – Monday is also observed & I went to town for an hour or so but it got my goat to see the young boys minus legs, arms, etc & to see the women in mourning – it is very sad – but they are brave & smile & put up a wonderful front – they are simply marvelous!!
