Background pictures

The background picture on the first five banners is reproduced by the courtesy of the Imperial War Museum. The photograph was taken by Lt. John Warwick Brooke on 11 April 1917. It is one of the few photographs of the actual moment of attack; an officer of the 9th Battalion the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) leads the way out of a sap during the spring battles of 1917. © IWM.

The background image used on the last five banners is reproduced by the courtesy of the Imperial War Museum. It is an aerial photograph of a British gas attack in progress between Carnoy and Montauban in June 1916, shortly before the Somme offensive. Montauban, then still in German hands, is at the top left of the picture and Carnoy, behind British lines, is at the bottom right. © IWM.
