The British and Dutch artillery, established on the commanding feature of Mount Igman, were firing down at the Serbs who were besieging Sarajevo. This was known as Operation PEGASUS.

The No.1 commanding the nearest mortar (holding a white notepad) is Korporal Gaspers. Rocky outcrops of limestone are scattered about the ground.
