A German Attack at Ypres

Wednesday 21st October 1914: Today the 2nd Bedfords have moved almost due north from Geluveld to Zonnebeke. During the day the Germans made an attack on our positions, trying to push through to Ypres.

The adjutant tells us: “As we were leaving our trenches they were shelled fairly heavily, one platoon of C Company under Lieutenant Paine being unable to leave its trench. The Battalion was also shelled on its way to Zonnebeke. Fortunately no one has been killed”.
