    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Nice photo's, just a shame the main subject is obliterated by the water mark, which spoils the image completely.

    Hi Paul,
    The biggest give away is no leaves on the trees, Operation Varsity March. Arnhem September, plus also these are well known pictures from Varsity.
    Water marks or not, I like them.
