SHREWSBURY FOREST

This photograph is of another German front line strong point in Shrewsbury Forest. Some idea of the closeness of the British Lines can be judged by the position of the white house as seen through the gap in the trees at the forest’s edge. This house now stands very close to the British front of March 1917 as known to Edmund Blunden.
