Aerial shots of devastated British trenches. Noted in pencil as 'Menin gate'. Both pictures show a landscape of waterlogged shell holes: one area was once fields, the other a wood.

Part of the photograph and scrap album of Revd. Leonard Thomas Pearson, Army Chaplain's Department (attached No. 44 Casualty Clearing Station), discovered in a skip and deposited with the Bodlian Library. Revd. Pearson was interviewed by Lyn Macdonald for her book 'The Roses of No Man's Land', which contains two extracts and a photograph.
