hutsMay 31st 1915 – VLAMERTINGHE, half way between POPERINGHE and YPRES

Iron huts infested with vermin

“This is a filthy camp, it is a collection of corrugated iron huts infested with vermin, and occasionally the Germans by way of a morning hate drop a crump onto us.  A “crump” by the way is either a 5 inch or an 8 inch howitzer high explosive shell.”
