These previously unseen photographs were sent to me by John Francis. They were scanned in by a friend of John's, recently moved to France. The original images were passed on to him by a new neighbour. We are informed that the photographs were taken by the neighbour's Great Uncle, called Andre, who served in the artillery.
I am sure you will agree that these are fascinating photographs.
If more information comes to light about their background, I will add it here.
