What's New in Version 1.0.2
This has helped me with my planned visit to Belgium and France for my 60th birthday next year to visit the graves of my two Great Uncles who died in the First World War.
Cambridgeshire Pals missing from the Somme map
Disappointed that I couldn't find the Cambridgeshire Pals, especially the 11th Battalion Suffolk Regiment, on the Somme map.
My 2 girls are doing history GCSEs and this app has been an excellent help !!! Very happy 😀😀x
