battle of loos

In preparation for the attack a mine was

detonated under the German front line at

5.48 a.m. This was followed by a



of enemy positions, and gas

and coloured smoke was released, making


‘impossible to see more than a few

yards in front of our own parapet’


The attack was launched at 6.00 a.m. on 25 September. ‘Dundee’s

Own’ made steady progress across No Man’s Land but had barely

left their trenches when they were met with a steady fire from

the German lines.
