Hello , I'm just taking a look at this aerial view of High wood and would like to make sure that it is the right way up! , is the crater on the East or to the South of the wood?

East - i.e. it's the right way up

What is the date on the photo?

According to page 214 of Peter Barton's excellent book The Somme a new panoramic perspective you have the picture correctly orientated. ( interestingly it also has a small picture of the crater as it is today below it.)

Many thanks guys , yes a fantastic book, the panorama views are great , can't wait to take them on my next trip.
