The Scottish Rifles glengarry badge and the British case shot came off the Kop in 1977.

I am trying to find out the origin of this sketch by the war artist, Rene Bull, of Spion Kop. I believe it's in the Black and White Budget, but only at low resolution... would anyone know where I can find a better version of it?
Many thanks
Rob

All who have read about Spion Kop will know that the summit was shrouded in dense mist till about 8 am. This is quite frequent in the summer, and I attach a photo which was taken from the spot where Renee Bull did the sketch earlier in this thread.

Hi Rob...I had a play with the image and ran it through photoshop....best I could do with the original.
