Seadog

Possibly the best modern video I have ever seen, this is not broadcast quality it is far better than that.

Agreed. Hugh Davies is a Forum member and I'm sure that that video is on here.

Thanks Hywyn it deserves being in this place so members are able to easily find it. The video is more poignant for me right now as a Welsh member of my party on a trip to the Somme whose father fought in this place has recently died and the last time I saw him he told me how moved he was to stand in the place where his father fought in 1916 even though a number of years had passed since his visit. His name is Dennis Smith a merchant navy seafarer and I post this image as a tribute to him, sadly his wife predeceased him.

That was excellent Seadog, thanks for putting it up. Mametz is always part of my annual itinerary of The Somme.
