Hi Henry,

I could identify the described locations by your textural explanations, but has currently some problems to compare this with your GPS position.

The Google Maps position of the Mahiwa Catholic church. It´s very easy if you found the exact position of your photo and click there two times.

A Google Earth perspective could complete afterwards the picture of this Gun, and we can compare this with the maps and textual sources.

Further what is RHS trench?

Cheers Holger

I see that the medals of Kapitan Max Looff have been made available for purchase.....what a fantastic offer. Wish I had the money.

Hope a Museum becomes the new owner though; it may then be displayed for all to see..
