Just curious if anyone has a modern day picture of the Market Sq in Comines. I wanted to know if the clock tower had been restored. Andy

Are they shell/bomb craters along the line of what appears to be a railway embankment? Incredibly accurate! Or were they the results of demolition? Probably the latter - the small bridge (top right) over the stream appears to have been blown.

Very interesting aerial photo.....just tried to find the location on a trench map, but seems to be well away to the east (unfortunately I don't have map 29).

I was reading about aerial photos in a WW1 booklet on interpretation of photos recently.....seems if you make sure the shadow is falling towards you (need to turn photo) things become much easier to identify. Seems to work! Peter.
