The crater in Lagnicourt (beyond Vaulx-Vraucourt and near the Hindenberg line), the scene some months earlier of heavy hand to hand fighting. Lagnicourt was captured by the 7th Australian Infantry Brigade on 26 March 1917, and the Germans attacked and won the village on 15 April, but were immediately driven out by the 5th Brigade, who continued to hold it until their withdrawal from the Sector.
