Carnoy Wreath

Thanks to those who replied to my earlier request for information. We're back now after a great trip. Does anyone know who laid the wreaths in a tree near Carnoy Craters on the Carnor-Montaban road?The accompanying message was too badly weathered to read. Also, we tried to find the site of the Kasino (Casino) point mine crater, but found only the shallowest of depressions. Has it existed as a recognisable crater in living memory?

The Casino Point crater went in the 1970s; the last remaining Carnoy Craters about 1999/2000.

Glad you had a good trip; must have been tough walking in the snow, or did you just miss it?

The snow wasn't too bad on the Somme - heavier at Tilloy near Arras where we did a walk, and a complete white-out at Ploegsteert on the Friday (photo) We had a very scary drive back to Calais Friday pm - saw at least two bad accidents; we heard that a British couple had been killed near Calais - bad do's

What a lovely photo - thanks for posting it. Makes me wish I was likely to be heading over there myself any time soon ... (sigh)
