Postcard showing the church at Zonnebeke, Edmund Blunden notes, 'Before Third Ypres', with it's tower intact; photograph of the same church after the battle; postcards showing the hop garden and an unidentified figure at the Trappist Monestary of Mont-des-Cats, which Edmund notes provided 'A pleasant relief more than once, 1917'; and of the monestary from a different angle. The book was compiled by Blunden with the intention of providing complementary photographs supporting the narrative and poems of 'Undertones of War' (1928), and was inscribed 'E.B. New Year, 1935' while Blunden was living in North Oxford, a neighbour of Graham Greene.
