Shell casings

Open

On loan from a friend who thought I might like to photograph them, these engraved shell casings bear references to Somme and Ancre - places which relate to one of the darkest periods in modern history -World War 1.

I'm not sure wheteher these casings were engraved by some poor soul in the trenches, or whether they were post-produced after the war.

But they do provide a visual record of life, loss, history and the nostalgia of sad memories.
