When Guerle's grandfather, Jean-Baptiste Savary, returned from the war, he wanted to forget, even though he knew bodies were strewn on his land.
"He told us that when I'm dead, you have to get all the soldiers out," said Guerle.
Out of respect, the land behind the farm was never ploughed, and only lightweight sheep were allowed to graze. "We did not want to trample the dead," Guerle said.
Neither he nor anyone else knows how many soldiers are still buried in his fields.
But Dilly said: "I guarantee you that there are still a lot of them there."
