LINKS IN THE LONG LONG LINE The men seen in the photograph above are waiting to move along a communication trench which joined the line near Fleurbaix. The water-logged ground prevented the construction of a deep trench, and to provide cover, revetments of wire-mesh filled with soil were stacked along each side. The trio seen below are Australians. The photograph was taken in a front line trench at Croix du Bac, near Armentieres, in 1916, shortly after the Anzacs arrived in France.
