Faubourg D’Amiens Cemetery – Arras Memorial & Cemetery France

A Rather Special Project for a Friend at the Arras Memorial & Cemetery in France

As well as portrait and professional branding Photography, I still like to cover more personal projects too. So, I couldn’t resist the opportunity, when a very good friend told me that he was going to visit the Arras Memorial in France, 101 years to the day, to commemorate his Grandfather’s Uncle. Private 16142 Henry Bennet of the 7th Bn East Surrey Regiment 21 years old – who was killed during the first world war on the 3rd of May 1917.
