The Ypres Salient - CWGC

Exhausted infantry of 39th Division were forced to abandon St Julien and move back; on their right the advanced units of XIX Corps withdrew from London Ridge, abandoning in the process the hard won fortified positions of Somme Farm, Gallipoli Farm, Iberian Farm and Hills 35 and 37. These relinquished strongpoints would, in the subsequent weeks, only be regained after long and bloody fighting.
