http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04pj7jq This was a great programme I watched recently on BBC IPlayer. The Man Who Shot the Great War

"Revealing for the first time what has been described as 'the photographic discovery of the century', this documentary uncovers the remarkable story of the Belfast soldier who took his camera to war in 1915 and how his experiences were to have a dramatic and unexpected outcome many years later". Source and words the Beeb. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/galleries/p02c4d4h

Interesting. I didn't realise the 14th Battalion, Royal Irish Rifles wore YCV shoulder titles.

I was most impressed by the detail in the pictures, considering the quality of the equipment, and the fact that he was not supposed to take photos, he must have been a very skilled photographer indeed
