Battle of the Somme, British objectives, 1 July 1916. The Somme operation demanded logistical preparation which dwarfed anything previously attempted by the BEF. Hunderds of thousands of men and horses had to be moved up to the front; millions of shells brought forward, millions upon millions of tons of food and stores provided; road and rail links greatly improved, trenches dug, tunnels carved and huge explosive mines laid ready under German strongpoints, while under fire. weaponsandwarfare...

I have been colourising photos for a few years now and have gradually built my hobby into a home grown business PhotograFix. Last year I colourised a series of photos to mark the centenary of the Battle of the Somme, and this year I've chosen to mark the centenary of Passchendaele which began on 31st July 1917. The battle took place on the Western Front, from July until November 2017 for control of the ridges south and east of the Belgian city of Ypres in West Flanders.
