British and Germans fighting in vicinity of Ypres, 1914

A house to house street fight between the British and the Germans in the neighbourhood of Ypres, Belgium, in autumn 1914. Frederic Villiers, special war artist of the Illustrated London News, who sketched the scene commented, 'street-fighting in the vicinity of Ypres has been almost a daily occurence during the recent strenuous attacks by the reinforced German army on the British position. One section of a village will be lost for a few hours and then retaken during the day. There is always a considerable loss of men in these fights.' Date: 1914
