The pier at the southern mouth of the Yser River, in no man's land, and the esplanade at Nieuport-Bains. The farther pier had just previously been shelled by our artillery and a German sniper was reported to have been dislodged. At this time the 2nd Australian Tunnelling Company was engaged in constructing defensive works in this sector.
