The Ypres Salient - CWGC

These comprised the 41st and 23rd Divisions (of X Corps) and the 1st and 2nd Australian Divisions (of I Anzac Corps), and who had collectively assaulted on a frontage of 4,000 yards. It was no accident that the offensively-minded Australian Divisions formed the centre of the overall attack. These formations, though experiencing heavy fighting and severe casualties, gained their second objectives by 7.45am and final objectives between 10.30am and noon. In the process the Australians successfully captured Inverness Copse and Glencorse Wood and gained a footing in Polygon Wood.
