Well captured. Of course the miners ended up doing the dangerous job of tunnelling under German lines and mining them. Not only was the tunnelling physically hard they had to contend with Germans counter tunnelling. It's only when you see the craters on the Ypres Salient that you begin to realise the enormity of what they were involved in.
It is always sobering to stand before a grave and think how far from home these men were.
Lovely light and colours Brian. I said it before - I'm jealous!
