The couple was greeted by a commander of Fusiliers royal regiment and stood for the sound of The Last Post before one minute's silence.

Dressed in a black coat and knee-high patent boots, Mrs May was weak as she wound on the grave of Private John Parr from the Middlesex Regiment, which died on August 21, 1914 – the first British soldier to be in the conflict – and the last who was killed, Private George Ellison of the Royal Irish Lancers, who died on the west front on November 11, 1918, at 9.30 before the Army came into force at. 11:00.

In the note left by the private couple's resting place, May quoted a series of wartime poems – the Soldier, written by Rupert Brooke.

She wrote: "There is a richer dust hidden in the rich earth."

Sonnet was written by Brooke, an officer of the Royal Navy, while on holiday in Christmas and formed part of a collection of 1914 titles published in January 1915.

Brooke never experienced frontline matches and died of blood poisoning in April 23, 1915 after being bitten by a mosquito while sailing to Gallipoli. He was buried on the island of Skyros.

At the grave of Private Ellison, even in the blue pen on a Downing Street card attached to the wreath's wreath, Mrs May wrote: "They were strong toward the end of the odds untold … We will remember them."

This was from another poem written by Laurence Binyon and published in September 1914, which is often quoted in Reminder Sunday Services.

During the short visit she and Michel met British and Belgian servants of armed forces.

When she left, she thanked the organizers for what had been a visit.

In the afternoon, she will travel to France, due to meeting President Macron in Albert, the city in the heart of the Somme region who suffered significant bombardment during the conflict.

The leaders will have a private meeting and a work lunch before leaving a wreath ceremony at the nearby Thiepval Memorial – the place bearing the names of more than 72,000 members of the armed forces who died in battle and holding an annual memorial to Somme -Miss.

A wreath combining poppies and le bleuet, the two national memorials for Britain and France, is made for May.
