Hello Chris, some nice photos.....but for correction, both bunkers you caption are are not German but British (well, Australian in the case of Hill 60, 154 Company Royal Enginners for Derry House.

Sorry we could not meet up - I had a heavy cold and decided not to share it with everyone. I attended the re-burials which was very moving.

Chris B-

The majority of men in La Belle Alliance are 33rd brigade and a good number of those my 9th Bn Sherwood Forester men.

Definitely the Salient – Seen near Palingbeek ten days ago. One of many disturbed by drainage work. I would demand danger money to work in Flanders!. Before anyone asks, No I did not touch or consider bringing back as a memento. And I did not scrape the muck from the fuse. At all times I adhered to strict Health & Safety guidelines and wore a high Vis jacket plus hard hat and took the photo with a 500mm telephoto lens.

thanks very much for your comments & the correction is noted - do you have anything on the history of the bunker at Hill 60
