The Bernagousse national cemetery brings together the bodies of 12 soldiers from the 215th infantry regiment, including an unknown soldier, in an ossuary monument erected after the Great War.
Apart from soldier Louis Darbas, they all died on 12 March 1918 during the explosion of an ammunition depot at the Bernagousse quarry. Among the others, Jean-Baptiste Monnery and Jean Cros were stretcher bearers at the infirmary set up nearby, some remains of which still exist today, with the inscription "Infirmerie Bonnery - Chavart; 215 RI (infantry regiment) who died for France".
