Bernafay Wood, Looking Towards Trônes Wood (Art.IWM ART 4484) image: a view across a desolate and battle-scarred Somme landscape. There are flooded shell holes in the foreground, and clouds of smoke rising from the land in the distance. There are the shattered tree trunks of Bernafay Wood jutting out from the ground, an indication of what used to be a woodland area. Copyright: © IWM.
