Caption: Fovant Badges. Aerial photograph of regimental badges cut into a chalk hillside on Fovant Down, near Fovant, Wiltshire, UK. Up to 50 metres across, most were made British Army or Empire soldiers camped nearby before they went to fight in France in the First World War. The first badge was cut in 1916. Eight remain, with the non-military YMCA badge (second from left) allowed to fade away from 2005. Classed as scheduled monuments, the badges are (from left): Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry, 6th City of London Rifles, Australian Commonwealth Military Forces, Royal Corps of Signals (1970), Wiltshire Regiment (1950), London Rifle Brigade, Post Office Rifles, and the Devonshire Regiment.
