Difficult to see clearly but this is Dave GROVER from TFH standing in an original GI shell scrape. Part of a series of shell scrapes and foxholes discovered by the team in woods.

The man who is 2nd from the left is the man in the centre of the previous Pic. As the Americans liberated his village he joined the Free French Army and went into Germany, he produced this picture form his wallet, as best we could decipher he was a .30 cal gunner.
