To mark the centenary, Gary travelled to Greece, visiting the battlefield and the cemetery at Polykastro (aka Karasouli).
He has kindly allowed me to post some of his photos on the blog. Many thanks mate!
|The hilltops that were the focus of the assault|
|Looking across to the Roche Noir, marked a lump of rock on the hilltop.|
|View from one of the hilltops looking down towards the British line.|
|Looking down towards the valley bottom where the British line started the assault.|
|You can still see outline of trenches on the hilltops.|

Thanks once again Gary!
