WW1, 30 June 1916, the Battle of Boars Head, a prelude to the Battle of the Somme that began the next day. The Boar's Head was a salient providing a vantage point for the Germans. The British mission was to remove them. Most soldiers were from 11th, 12th and 13th Southdown Battalions, of the Royal Sussex Regiment. At 3.05 am on 30th June 1916, the troops went over the top. Crossing the dyke slowed progress and made them easy prey for German guns. The attack was a disaster.
In an effort to try to document the impact serving in Afghanistan has on a person, photographer Claire Felicie began a project entitled Marked in 2009, after her eldest son had enrolled as a marine. The series, which spans from 2009 to 2010, follows 20 young soldiers on their tour of duty in the 1st Battalion, 13th infantry company of the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps, taking photos of the soldiers before, during and after their deployment.
