The Ypres Salient - CWGC

84th Brigade battalions (1st Suffolk, 2nd Cheshire, 1st Monmouthshire regiments and 2nd Northumberland Fusiliers) held positions to the north ('left' of 83rd Brigade) from near Frezenberg to Mouse Trap Farm (the British held fortified remnants of original farm buildings a half-mile north of Wieltje). The Brigade initially held the onslaught of German attackers but was by afternoon overwhelmed - and in the process suffered grievous losses.
