This series of photographs is believed to have been taken by Observer Sub-Lieutenant Cyril Norman Ellen.

The village of Kato Krusoves/Krusovo as it appeared in September 1917. The area is now called Kato Kerdylia, but the village has been deserted and in ruins since it was destroyed, and the male population massacred, by the Germans in 1941. Only the church was rebuilt, and the original belltower still stands as a memorial to the 230 dead of Ano and Kato Kerdylia.
