Wire entanglements in front of the German front line from October 1915 to May 1917, on Hill 70, near Loos. The rough nature of the surface is largely the result of mine fighting by the 3rd Australian Tunnelling Company, attached at that time to British Troops. It was here that Major Leslie Jack Coulter DSO, was killed in action on 29 June 1917, and Lieutenant H. Russell MC, fatally wounded. Note the soldier standing near the sandbags.
