The Ypres Salient - CWGC

The immediate response to the loss of St Julien included the attack of the 4th Green Howards  (Yorkshire Regiment) and 4th East Yorkshires of 150th Brigade (supported by Canadian artillery batteries) which forced the Germans back to the edge of the village and effectively ended any further German progress on 24 April. Secure in the knowledge of their dominance in artillery fire-power (equally effective in supporting them in attack and defence) the Germans were content to halt, dig-in and consolidate their gains and repel the British counter-attacks.
