Bonjour.

This bottle of ketchup "H.J. HEINZ " was found in a dustbin of a WWI camp of US troops in Argonne.

Guess that is proof enough that these bottles actually made it to France.  Many thanks!    MHJ

Yes, the garbage cans are buried. A hole was dug and the waste was thrown into it.

Kim.

I didn't find the bottle. He's a friend of yours. There were other vials, but not identifiable, without markings.

It's interesting how things that were most common back in the day are the hardest ones to find in the present.  Everyday items were of such little value, nobody thought to save them.
