The Ancre Marshes


Recommended Posts




The first was taken just opposite the level crossing at Hamel, the other two further in - according to the georeference maps, the German front line lay more or less exactly along the line of trees in the second photo. Given the water level, I can't imagine there was any sort of trench here. I assume that this is the rough location of the German position known as 'The Summer House', referred to by, I think, Edmund Blunden?
