St. Eloi Crater
One of the large craters on the St. Eloi battlefield where the 29th Battalion was engaged in heavy fighting in April 1916.This photograph was probably taken some time after the battle. In the foreground craters, the water has dried up, the battlefield dead have been cleared and buried, and the road, visible in the distance, is fully functional.
