    Sorry if this has already been posted.

    A series of drawings of front line positions made by a Royal Engineer during WW1 have just come to light.

  3. He starts as a member of the "shiny" 7th Battalion The London Regiment.
  4. Gotta point this one out though... Burnt Nazi Book?? WTF?

    I hope some of the proceeds go to the appropriate charity. Amazing work though!
