One and all,

 

Your views, please.

The ridge here was the objective of the 4th Worcesters on 29th September 1918; map square k.31.a, Sheet 28 NW.

 

My question is: was this a roadside cafe pre-1914?

I knew there was a picture somewhere, but I couldn't immediately find it. Thanks for posting.

Yes, Rossignol in French, Nachtigall in German and Nachtegaal in Dutch.

Presumably from the spelling that is a German postcard.  nd isn't a bahnhof a railway station in English?

 

Would the building have had multi-lingual signage, or just Flemish?

Which Rossignol is this?

I can't find one in France and the only one I know of is in Belgium.

This is Nachtegaal on the Menin Road (between Geluveld and Geluwe). The was a tram stop (the tram line from Menen went from here through the fields towards Beselare and from there to Geluveld and back on the Menin Road).

In the area is also "Oude Hond" (Vieux Chien in French).

This is NOT Rossignol near Ploegsteert.

It is, therefore, not the Rossignol (where there was a massacre in August 1914) near Arlon.

And there is indeed this Rossignol as well. Nightingales everywhere...
