Remembered Today:

Photo, Maltz Horn Farm area

Recommended Posts

On my recent visit to the Somme I got caught in a torrential rain storm and, as it began to clear, I snapped this picture from the south of Trones Wood looking towards Maltz Horn Farm (marked by a faintly visible white crucifix on the horizon to the right). I was tracking the footsteps of the 15th Sherwood Foresters and they attacked from right to left here in July 1916 with many casualties and the leaden sky and rainbow created a truly eerie atmosphere.

I don't claim it to be War Art as such, but this picture moves me, and I now use this as wallpaper on my PC.

Has anyone else photo's to share that moved them?

I use this picture of pozieres Cemetery as my desktop background.

Keeps me thinking!

Can I offer the following? The Cloth Hall, Ypres at night, sunrise in Belgium 21st November, and Langemark German cemetery. (Larger pictures available should anyone want them)

Sorry - as anyone who has been there will know, that is the town hall in Ypres and not the Cloth Hall. Try again.
