The Ypres Salient - CWGC

84th Brigade was ordered up from reserve to counter-attack between Bellewaarde Lake and the railway line in order to recover lost British trenches. The men had no time for food and endured a gruelling slog across the country south of Ypres (during which many men were lost to enemy shell fire). It was not until 5pm that they could launch their attack; this was successful and forced the Germans out of Witte Poort Farm and off the small ridge below which it stood. Here the Brigade dug-in to await the arrival of 80th Brigade.
