German prisoners marching and carrying wounded from the front line to Hooge on the morning of 20 September 1917, when the Australian attack deeply penetrated the strong German positions in the Ypres salient. Dozens of telephone cables running alongside the road can be seen in the top image. Due to the advance of the Australian troops there had not yet been time to bury the cables to protect them from shellfire.
