La vojo returne – original negatives

 

These negatives, purchased from eBay, are the small collection of an unnamed German soldier of the Medical Unit of the 10th Hanover Engineer Battalion in World War I. Sadly the unit’s military records were totally destroyed in World War II by British bombing. I have however now identified the location as the town of Grandpré, in the Ardennes, France. The negatives reveal light moments away from the Western Front, which was just a few kilometres south of the small town.
