COMMENTS & FEEDBACK

Luke

A big "thumbs up" for the latest publication on Bullecourt! My relative Bert Perry was awarded his MM there during fighting with D Coy of 14th Bn AIF.

I have been to Bullecourt before to try and find exactly where he would have crossed no mans land, but Paul's work will help me to really walk in his footsteps when I go next. Definitely recommended!

‘Fronts Lines and Trenches’, project Beaumont-Hamel. by Paul Humphriss. This booklet delivers exactly what it promises: front lines and trenches. Dozens of aerial photos "then and now" superimposed, and also some beautiful panoramas. Nowadays there is a lot to be found online, but I think paper still offers great added value.

Paul, thank you very much once again. I will make the trip Belgium next June. You FB page here is of the best calibre, and i enjoy reading and learning from all the information that comes across here.

Meg

Well done Paul! You are so kind. I will never forget you locating my great uncle, William Quade AIF.

John

This is an amazing series/sequence of photos, Paul Humphriss. How clearly they evidence the effects on the terrain of a prolonged battle.

Have you thought about offering them to schools for WW1 syllabus?

Truly amazing piece of work. We are indebted to you.

Will

Just received my copy, wow, the work and effort is to be applauded, this will be forever in my bag when on the Somme, this will help to understand the areas and actions better and pinpoint trenches.

Roy

Brilliant research Paul. Congratulations! Private Angus Munro, Rest in Peace, in the warm glow of glory. You’re not forgotten.

Jim

He is an ace at this kind of thing. He has done the same for me for the locations of the deaths of two of my Great Uncles; one in the Second Battle of Ypres and one just outside Courcelette. Jim.

Would just like to thank Paul at ‘Fronts,Lines and Trenches’ for providing me with a number of battle maps and overlays of areas where my Great Grandfather served at Arras. After sending Paul names of trenches which were named in the War diary he produced not only original trench maps but he also placed them over current terrain maps to see exactly where the position was. The work he put in was so much appreciated and when I visit in September (COVID-19 permitting) these will be of great assistance to stand where my Grandfather did.

After making a donation to the up keep his work I also purchased one of his T-shirt’s which arrived today. Great quality and fantastic service on this page. If anyone is looking for assistance then I would highly recommend Paul’s work.

Visit The Somme and Western Front Battlefields, WW1 Photographs, Somme Hotels, B&B's, Cemeteries, Museums, Memorials, maps and Battlefield Tours.
