Description

This fold-out reconnaissance sketch showing the Hindenburg Line. Inscription below image reads: "Went up to O.P. on road between Ecoust. Made sketch of Bullecourt. The Hindenburg Line is visible for miles and looks a nasty proposition. Started snowing so had to finish hurriedly. Went back to Battery and inked sketch in. Located a gun flash from Riencourt and Ross got his guns on to it."
