That is extremely moving...an  incredible amount of hard work.

Not much makes me cry...

Utterly absorbing and extremely well done. Their names need to be published alongside this outstanding work. Thanks, Terry

There is another equally moving Somme contribution to 'Youtube', by the same team.

Father and son I believe.

Absolutely amazing it was as if we were watching ghosts walk by.  Fantastic work and what a way to remember them.

I liked the opening shots of the Church at Bray. One month later and my car was in the square and I was having a cup of tea in the cafe on the corner behind the car. I did a few walks around Bray and area when researching 30 Div RE who were in the area before 01/07/1916.

A lot of work must have gone into this.

Excellent video. His earlier drafts were the basis for my first visits to the Somme.

Thanks to it I probably never would have found Minden Post etc.

 

Also on his channel he has a great video on making a 3D relief map of the Somme battlefield from a trench map - amazing bit of work.

Can you please post a link? [Frustratingly, no-one has mentioned his name yet]

That's a link to his videos including the 3d map project.

MC C is his channel name.

 

I believe he lost the password of his original account where he had a first draft of the Somme 'Then and Now' video. This channel name was 'tashkenk goatman' but only hosts a short unfinished version of what's linked above so the link here is the best one.
