Above The Battlefield Video: Ovillers, Somme

Ovillers Military Cemetery was started during the winter of 1916/17 when dead from the front line between Thiepval and Courcelette were buried here, including the son of the then famous Music Hall star Sir Harry Lauder. His son, Captain John Lauder, was killed in the front line during a quiet period in December 1916. His grave is in the staggered collection of burials clearly visible on the right in this film. There are 3,440 burials here of which 2,480 are unidentified.

Filmed as usual with a DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ drone.
