i'm having trouble seeing it, it's pixelating. Maybe just a bad connection speed at the moment?

Excellent even eight years after Inverness Copse ( wrecked tank) seems to consist of one shattered tree.

Fascinating film, as an ecologist, a particular interest of mine is the restoration and recolonisation of the battlefield areas and how this was accomplished.

:P

Might be my operating system?

Anyway, enough of that. I will keep trying, and I look forward to seeing it without all the little boxes.

Unlikely the OS Mike could just be atmospherics; anyway it works perfectly for me.

Good luck

Unbelievable how big the mess still was, even after eight years...

Fantastic film Egbert. I was not surprised to see the many stark dead tree trunks that had been shelled to bits, but amazed by those trees that had survived with flimsy branches which had miraculously grown back from the tops of the trunks in a weird sort of way.

Small world Hazel,

my Grandfather lay at Ypres (Chateau Herenthage) fighting the Cheshire and was shot through his hand or arm Nov 1914, and consequently luckily was sent back home for re convalescence

My grandfather was at Ypres in 1914 also but was with the 1st Seaforth ( Meerut Div.) at that point. I think he escaped that part unscathed but his visit in 1917with the 8th Seaforth was a bit different. Good job both our grandfathers survived!!
