    A while ago I posted a couple of aerial photos and you all liked seeing them, so here are a bunch more, all nicely labeled with towns, trenches, grid coordinates, landmarks, etc.

    Great, Stork! Do you have an approximate date for them?

    Cynthia, the dates are on the aeroplane aerial photographs.

    So they are! I didn't read those carefully. I thought they were map coordinates!

    I love seeing these. Given they're all so nicely labelled, I keep thinking we should try and superimpose them over the current landscape on google earth. It would need a bit of jiggery-pokery, of course, to account for the angle the photos were taken at and so on, but I'm sure it would be possible.
