Australian soldiers occupying an observation post, which was originally a German pillbox, on Anzac Ridge, near Ypres. Hundreds of such pillboxes dotted the Ypres sector and stretched for a depth of several miles from the front of the German lines. By the second half of 1917 actual trenches were uncommon at the front, with soldiers occupying concrete pillboxes and crater holes rather instead.
