Cee’s-FFChallenge-Hole-Or-Whole

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

When this elephant wandered past us our guide said,

There goes the whole of Africa.

Knowing our guide he would have

had a twinkle in his eye, as we did,

not knowing whether he had

said Hole or Whole

*****

However there was no discussion about spelling

we when arrived at Lochnagar Crater, some

21 Km from Villers Bretonneux.

A hole in the ground it was.

Created by detonating 27 tons of explosive

under the German army’s frontline.

The explosion created a crater

330 feet (100.5 metres) across

and 70 ft (21 metres) deep.

For comparison a Jumbo jet

measures 63 metres in length

with a wing span of 60 metres

and a height of 19.4 metres (63 ft 6 in)

meaning it would easily fit in the crater.
