France, Germany remember first soldiers killed in WWI

French Lance Corporal Jules-Andre Peugeot and German Sub-Lieutenant Albert Mayer were both killed on the eve of the outbreak of the 1914-18 war. While Peugeot is remembered in France every year, Saturday’s events were the first time that representatives from the two countries joined a ceremony in memory of both men. The inscription on the stone reads: “More than 30 hours before declaring war on France, Imperial and Royal Germany spilled the first French blood.”
