    Well - that would be an exciting coincidence that confirms my assumptions made so far.

    I cannot tell you anything else about the story behind the photograph; other than that is was also developed in Leuven. I have no idea whether it was taken by a local or a BEF soldier.

    Thank you for pointing this out.
