Excerpt from The Grenadier Guards in the Great War of 1914-1918, Vol. 2 of 3
Major-general G. Feilding gave a lecture to March. The Officers on March 1, and impressed on them the importance of making the line north Of Hooge strong and defensible, since it was the left ¿ank of... the whole British line. This could be done only by ingenious concealment of any new work and by unremitting efforts of all ranks. He added that, if the enemy concentrated opposite the Ypres salient, a withdrawal would be made to the Canal line. Any ground that could not be held against the enemy's artillery fire would be defended by strong points and machine-guns concealed in natural features, and placed apart from entrenchments and other works.
