The Explorers' Club, № DLXII

Operation AXIOM: The World War—The Battle of Passchendaele (Third Ypres), Part II
16-18 August 1917: The Battle of Langemarck—British & French forces attacked behind carefully coordinated creeping artillery barrages, consolidating their gains on the northern flank but being pushed back to their start lines by determined German counterattacks on the southern flank, on the Gheluvelt Plateau; operations continued to be hampered by heavy, unseasonable rains & mud.

Lest we forget.
