  • Text: Les vignerons français, dans un admirable élan de solidarité, ont envoyé à nos soldats une / bonne partie du vin provenant de la récolte de 1914. C'est une joie profonde pour nos soldats / lorsqu'ils ont bien fait leur devoir et qu'ils peuvent profiter d'un repos bein gagné, de déguster un / peu de ce " bon vin de France ". Il leur paraît d'autant plus savoureux qu'ils en furent longtemps / privés. Voici dans la chambre de repos précédent la premiere ligne, les poilus du X... bataillon / d'infanterie. Ils sont animés de la plus saine gaieté et boivent à la "Victoire des Alliés"
