There is a 12 section Third Army Panorama No 581 made on 15 May 1918 of the area between Englebelmer, Mesnil village,Thiepval Church, Pozieres Ridge  Trees Aveluy Wood, Bouzincourt Village, Becourt village, Senlis Village & trees, Maricourt wood ,albert-bray, trees on Albert Ameins Road, Senlis Henencourt road, Henencourt wood. This is part of the Somme region in France where the British frontline was near in August 1918. This panorama is made up of twelve black and white high definition photographs attached together with webbing material, one joint is missing so it is in two parts, there is some damage to the top right of the first photograph where it has been pinned up.

This collection came as a group so I have decided not to split them up. The photographs have bumped corners, curling at edges, the long panorama is in two pieces odd marks some corner wear. On the rear of the first picture in the panorama is a detailed drawing of angles and sizes of a planned route?
A fascinating group of WW1 memorabilia worthy of further military research. 1 twelve section panorama, one Portrait photograph of a Royal Flying Corps Observer and 9 aerial photographs.
