The Great War and H P Wilkins

Hi all,

Spending this weekend in Belgium and France on a world war 1 tour. 

Moon is beaming down and I’m reminded that H P Wilkins claimed to observe the moon through a small telescope he took to the trenches during the war So in his memory here is a very poor photo taken with an iPhone tonight in memory of the man himself
