Brad,

The enlargement of OP Harry shows the access trench in good detail. I went up and down that thing many times before June 15th. On the 15th one could not recognize anything once familiar on the desolate place. Now I'm trying to remember just where my CP bunker was. It seems to me it would have been near the center of Harry. Right?

This is a big improvement for the site.

This is one that might show some clashes of ancient memories. I have no firsthand knowledge of the CP on Harry. Ed Matney sent those 2 aerial photos and the sketch that we published in the Newsletter issue #28. The sketch was used as part of a justification for a citation of one of Matney's company officers. Note that the CP is indicated on the forward part of the loop near the right flank. Note also that this was when the 2nd Division had the OP a few days before the Truce. If that grease pencil note is correct then the sketch is wrong or vice-versa? Or the 2ID moved the location?
