Battle of Langemarck

The Battle of Langemarck was part of Third Ypres and was fought through the muddy swamp just east of the city of Ypres from 16-18 August 1917.

The 36th Ulster Division were just north of Zonnebeke in the Steenbeek valley, and the 9th Royal Irish Fusiliers suffered terrible casualties.

John Adams was awarded the Military Medal for his efforts that day.
