A companion to Lieutenant Williams’ First World War painting of Monchy-le-Preux, this painting depicts the ruined village of Calonne in Belgium, west of Lens and south-west of Loos. Situated just behind the British front line on the Western Front, Calonne was close to the battlefields of Loos (1915) and Arras (1917) in the Flanders Sector of the Western Front. In the snow-covered landscape, a group of British Tommies stand in a trench of sandbags which cuts between the ruined buildings.
