1917, AUGUST 18th – CAMP AT WATOU TO GOLDFISH CHATEAU

Bivouacs Behind Ypres, 19th August 1917

Remained at Watou until the 18th, then marched to reserve camp in Ypres N. area.

From the Story of the 2/4th Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry by Captain G. K. Rose KC (Oxford: B.H. Blackwell, 1920)

On August 18, starting at 4 a.m., the Battalion marched to Goldfish Chateau, close to Ypres, and the Transport to a disused brickfield west of Vlamertinghe. We lived in bivouacs and tents and were much vexed by German aeroplanes, and to a less degree by German shells.
