On 31 March 2005 I wrote on that very page (it is still there on the first link, above) "This is a really wonderful collection. Thank you for making it available to us. I will bring it to the attention of more than 6000 members of the Great War Forum - let us see if we can make any identifications."

thanks for the update Chris, I was led here by a good friend, and didn't notice that that was the same place, anyway, your site has grown a lot and many people will enjoy the update too.

regards,

Guillaume

That is true, Guillaume.

By the way I have visited Bailleul on many occasions over the years. My wife's uncle is buried in the Communal Cemetery Extension, but I also visited several times when I was writing my book on the Battle of the Lys. I have always liked the town but was really delighted to see the restored fountain behind the Town Hall - a very nice feature.

It's now listed on Amazon, which says 21 April ... the last I heard from the publisher is March, so I am not sure how that all works out. Around then, anyway.

Great pictures - I wonder why the RA Gunner/Driver in the first batch on the top row right has his bandolier over the wrong shoulder? Will be checking out the book Chris.

Because the plate is reversed? If you flip the pic, the man's posture looks more natural.

Fantastic images, do you know where the pictures of the Battlefields were taken ?

So simple that I missed it!

Can't view the pictures either. Get a small red cross where they should be.

Hi John.

I have the same view - just click on the red cross anyway and it will take you there.

Amazing photos. I have a vivid imagination at the best of time, but I am always stunned to silence when viewing any photos of battlefields and trenches.

What all of these soldiers witnessed and endured cannot be praised enough....

Great photos.

For those who are only seeing a Red X - right click the X and choose open link in new window - that should help.

Cheers

Hello,

the battlefields pictures were taken in la Marne in places called Sapigneul and Beaumarais, the first place was fully destroyed and never rebuilt.

Guillaume
