John,

What sort of camera did you use for the panoramic shots, they look great.

It's a Fujifilm S1000i 10 Megapixel SLR on panorama setting and a very steady hand, fortunately my hands are in better nick that my eyes.

9th Scottish Division memorial at the PDJ ridge, this gives an idea of the size of it.

Hi Paul

I can't say too much :ph34r: at present I am 'one of the team', but yes a documentary on part of part of the battle, the clue is in the monument. Out in January hopefully.

#12 "trench cemetery".

Being new to the GW I've never heard that term before. Very intriguing.

Thanks for the images Jim and John.

Some great photos there - nice to see people going to these rarely visited places.

Yes. A very under-rated area. There is much to see.

Had a good look at all the pages in this section. I am always intriged as to where people go and take pictures on the western front. Everyone has their own facinating reasons and sometimes just seeing a picture can fill in a blank of an area that you've visited or even more so a visit you may be planning.

Have just stumbled across this thread by accident. Do you know of the 51st Highland division war sketches by Fred A Farrell, you can see them on line and plates 23 show the 6th gordons at roeux chemical works, thought it might interest someone

Seen the sketches mags but think you all the same for reminding me of them and pointing others on the Forum to them as well. There are about 6 or 7 of the Arras area in total within the collection.
