Ted, this is brilliant and you are a genius. Gordon Dump is on my list of visits next time I'm on the Somme as I have some Australian friends with relatives buried all over the Western front. The contacts came about due to an amazing coincidence five years ago when I was visiting Fromelles. The man that I want to visit at Gordon Dump is QSM George Williams whose grand niece Anne makes wine in the Yarra valley in Australia. I watched the video thinking there's not much chance of George being in a close up, and wondering if I could identify his grave from a long pan shot. But there he is at 2.12. If it is ok with you I'll email the link to Anne and her friend Di down under. The music is very haunting too.

 

Pete.

I doubt if it's anything to do with me Ted, I usually put people off. The link to the video is being distributed around upstate Victoria as we speak, I'll keep you posted.

.....Unless of course it has gone viral in upstate Victoria, I'd not thought of that......
