I've only just seen your message as I've been away, but it's really interesting.
Do you have the name of the observer, or his squadron number? *If you have any map references I could look up my trench map CD to see where they refer to, if you don't already know.
If they turned out to have anything to do with 20 Squadron RFC/RAF I would be very interested in buying any copies you are able to make before you send the originals to a museum, as I am researching that squadron's history.
But whatever the squadron, it's a fascinating find.
