Major Miles Stockwell - whose Grandfather Inglis Stockwell agreed the truce - met with the grandson of the German officer involved.

We've been here once or twice, but when we first came it felt extremely odd. And rather creepy.

But one's got used to it now. And one realises the very important occasion. And more important is... we're all talking to each other, so it doesn't happen again.

– Major Miles Stockwell
