Panorama from the Scherpenberg
Accompanying text reads:
"The hill on the right is Kemmel. More distant, on the left, is the Messines-Wytschaete ridge, the battlefield of June 7th 1917. The battle is in progress. Most to the left the ruins of Wytschaete village may be discerned through the ravaged trees of Wytschaete Wood. Between them and Kemmel may be made out the ruins of Messines. The drawing was made from the windmill on the little conical Scherpenberg knoll. The roof in the foreground is that of an old farmhouse which has never been abandoned by its tenant during nearly three years of exposure to German shell-fire. At daybreak on June 7th the farmer's family were all watching the battle from their windows. On Kemmel Hill, which is still more exposed, an old woman and her two young grandchildren have remained in their cottage throughout the war."
