This village, east of Hazebrouck, is here seen (beyond the trees) from the front line of the 11th Battalion on 17 June. A daylight raid had just been made against a German machine gun post situated at the foot of the trees on the right. Merris was seized by the 10th Battalion almost without loss, in a night operation on 30 July.
