It looks it is along the River Yzer, so somewhere in between the trench of death and shorebakke bridge. Possibly near Tervaete.

Farm in the flooded area (nearby Rattevalle ?) called "Rittmeisterferme" by the Germans.

Hello Malte,

I think that Your pic nr.15 was not taken at the Yser, but near Passendale - around 3rd Battle of Ypres.

Greetings,

Cnock

Thank you Cnock !

I firstly supposed the pic could have been shot in the area of Boezinge.

Malte,

I have seen this picture before, and if my memory is good, the caption said it was a working party near Wieltje.

Regards,

Cnock
