This Soldier's Bedroom Hasn't Been Touched Since WWI
When second lieutenant Hubert Rochereau went to fight for the French army during World War I, he sadly never returned home. He died on April 26, 1918, at a battle in Belgium, theTelegraphreports. Rochereau was posthumously awarded the Legion of Honor for his service, but as a more personal, moving tribute, his parents never changed anything in his bedroom.
Nothing has been touched for the past 96 years, and the soldier's military jacket, pistol collection, lace bedspread and many more nostalgic artifacts are displayed. Hopefully, it will stay that way for a quite while—when Rochereau's parents sold the home in 1935, they included a clause in the deed that called for leaving the room as is for the next 500 years.
The current owner says there's no real legal threat against changing the room, but he's thus far upheld the family's request. As such, what remains is a rare true-life museum and testament to the fallen veteran.
