The Ypres Salient - CWGC

The delayed advance of the 10th Brigade from west of the canal towards the flank of the German positions near Mouse Trap Farm had remarkable and unanticipated success - inducing the Germans to abandon their most recent gains and assume a more cautious defensive posture. By late evening of 8 May a new British front was formed: '...in the back line behind Verlorenhoek ridge - some three-quarters of a mile behind that held in the morning.' ('Military Operations. France and Belgium, 1915' (Volume I), Brigadier-General Sir J E Edmonds and Captain G C Wynne, London, Macmillan, 1927, p.324).
