The photograph below is taken somewhere here on 14 October 1917. In the distance can be seen ‘Broodseinde Ridge’: the ridge taken on 4 October.

The Australian 1st Division leaves for it 250 metres behind. In front of them is the Flandern I position, curved as a trap. Through targeted attacks, it is taken anyway. The offensive then runs aground on the ridge.
