Description

View of the woods and 'no man's land' at Broodseinde Ridge in the Ypres Sector, over which the Germans attacked a few minutes before our advance opened on the morning of 4 October 1917. The Australians met the enemy with the bayonet and after a fierce combat the German effort withered.
