IWM Photo Q61622 – mislabelled as “Hooge Chateau May 1915”.

This chateau was on a small island with a water filled ditch around it. After the chateau’s demise, a fan of bunkers was built in its place. These were captured by the final German advance in April 1918, and remained a front line position until the following September.
