During the First World War (1914–1918), the British sector of the Western Front extended north into the Flanders region in southern Belgium. Here, the front line projected into German-held territory as the triangular-shaped Ypres Salient, with the town of Ypres (Ieper) in the centre. The area was bombarded by German artillery from two sides and, by the end of the war, the town was almost completely flattened.
Exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1919 (No.93).
