Black Dudley Posted 20 November , 2013 Share Posted 20 November , 2013 Picked up this old postcard with the under-title - Captured English on 6.6.16 during storming / attack at Ypes, on the reverse is a pencil written letter dated 10.6.16. Researching the situation at Ypes at that time - the Battle of Mont Sorrel and Battle of Hill 60 raged 2nd June - 13th June with the Canadians being heavily involved. On most of these old postcards allied soldiers are described as English, when in fact they commonwealth soldiers, Australian, Canadian, New Zealand etc. Can members see from this poor picture, whether there are any clues as to which group these nine pows belonged to and why is only one wearing a tin hat and three have uniform caps, surely all were wearing tin hats when going on the attack. ?
