Descripción

Each print is in black and white, landscape and 17.5 x 23 cm. They are lightly-worn and in fair condition; one has a short closed tear and another a vertical crease at one side (neither of these in the panorama). Part of the same series of British official war photographs (one was published on 26 January 1918 on p. 469 of Part 180, Vol. X, of 'The Great War' magazine), and each numbered between S480 and S501. Shots of troops marching past the Chateau, of a large body of men in battledress standing in grounds, being addressed by the General and a padre, standing at a rostrum draped with the Union Flag and other allied flags, with officers seated beside it. One photograph shows the officers around the rostrum raising their hats with the General, another shows a parade of men with bagpipes, and another a column of men with rifles in parade with officer saluting. The three photographs forming the panorama are neatly attached to one another on the reverse with contemporary white ribbon. They extend to nearly 70 cm in length, and give an impressive view from the side of the rostrum decked with flags to the left, with a large body of seated men before it in extensive park land. A few months earlier Horne had led the First Army successfully (with the Canadian Corps to the fore) in the Battle of Vimy Ridge. See Sandall's 'History of the 5th. Batt. The Lincolnshire Regiment' (Oxford: Blackwell, 1922, p.137). N° de ref. de la librería 10404
