    Not far from Fromelles where more Aussies died in a single night than at any other time in our short history thanks to the incompetence of British Generals. Nice pic, fascinating but sad history.

    It looks from the sunlight and support beams that they are observing from an attic through holes in the roof.

    Hey Mark,
    Yes certainly unusual but a good pic and I agree it looks to be in an attic. I have a couple of WW1 pics and really like them. I will post my picture of an A7v with crew that I purchased a few years back for mega bucks when I get my scanner fixed.
