      Minor changes to the Forum   12/12/17

      We have altered the structure of the Home Fronts and Uniforms, Arms, Insignia, Equipment & Medals boards. We have removed the sub-category headings and now each board is more visible and easier to find. We have also renamed "About this website" and "Using theTechnology" to make it clearer where to post questions about the GWF website. We have also put a link ot the forum Rules on the main menu at the top to make them easier to find - particularly the section regarding requesting look ups on subscription sites such as Ancestry. Finally, for those who visit Skindles, there is a pinned post there detailing some changes to it.   Regards The GWF Admin Team

The best pics I have personally seen concerning Drie Grachten before and after without doubt appear in:

"The Great War seen from the air" "In Flanders Fields" by Mercatorfonds.

Tis expensive but brilliant. :thumbsup:

To Chris,

Indeed, excellent book with splendid photos.

Even if the book is rather expensive, it's worth bying !!!!

I do have the dutch language version.

As far as it concerns ' Drie Grachten ' , the photo of the map (see nr 54 ) mentions the name of the mill, cavennemolen, as called by the French'

I do think that the map is edited by the French army. What is your opinion ?

Does anyone know other photos ?

Gilbert :hypocrite:

Gilbert,

 

That's all I have (April 1915). Not a standing windmill and I'm afraid Belgian troops have already done their work .... And mind you, the windmill on maps and in German Regimental histories is spelled with a -v-, but obviously this is a misreading.
