'Cultural Desolation' - BE2c flies over Ypres in 1915 - painting by Graham TurnerCultural Desolation Ref: GT-GW8

A BE2c flies over the ruins of Ypres in 1915.

The destruction of this beautiful medieval town and the reduction of the Cloth Hall and St Martin's Cathedral from masterpieces of gothic architecture to piles of rubble would become a symbol of the First World War, as centuries of history were obliterated by the power of modern industrial warfare.

The view of the Cloth Hall and Cathedral the pilot and observer of this early BE2c can see as they fly over Ypres in 1915 is still recognisable; by the end of the War in 1918 nothing would remain.
