Lt Lees time in Mora during World War I from 1914 to 1915

Lt Arthur Lees took 178 photos during the so-called Mora military campaign against the last remaining contingency of German troops in the former German Cameroons under Hauptmann von Raben. The photographic negatives were discovered by Dan Robinson who, prior to the discovery of the negatives, had prepared Lt Lees' diary for publication with Mandaras Publishing. The photos have, with the kind permission of the relatives of Lt Lees, been made public via this site for further research.

Lt Lees' photos are numbered as they were found:

Provisional captions have been applied which are updated when new information becomes available. It already appears from comments made so far that the photos will need to be reordered into categories. This is hopefully going to be one of the results of this voluntary research project.
