BELLEWAARDE SPUR ATTACK

Another view of the German Front Line of June 1915 taken from No Man's Land.

The memorial is to the miners of a Royal Engineers Mining company who were entombed when the gallery in which they were working collapsed through enemy action. The Union Flag flying above the adjacent memorial to the Liverpool Scottish can just be seen to the right of the Cross of Sacrifice.
