Sapper's photographs of Flanders are found by grandson


Hubert Berry Ottaway, born in 1879, joined the Royal Engineers in 1900. When sent to war, he took his box Brownie camera to Flanders - returning with film which would be discovered by his grandson 95 years later. In the second half of 1918 and early 1919, he photographed destroyed homes, churches and public buildings. See amazing photos HERE
