Wytschaete or Witjschate with Hugh Dennis

Postby Janem46 » Fri Sep 20, 2013 8:47 am


I was very interested to hear Hugh Dennis story about his relative at the above. This was where the 330 Siege Battery was based and I think my great uncle Major Frederick James Colquham Hindson was stationed there in 1917 and later awarded the MC. There is a picture entitled A Battery Shelled by John Wyndham Lewis which I am told shows the scene and that it is possibly my great uncle in the forefront.

We have been back a couple of years ago to view the scene. Just a small village now in the middle of flat countryside. Hard to imagine what must have happened there.

Any more information would be most welcome.
