This is the area where Colonel J. Forbes-Robertson (1st Borders of the 87th Brigade) won his VC. With complete disregard for his own safety, he organised a solid defence of the area using composite elements of the 86th & 87th Brigades of the 29th Division. In effect, he stopped the line collapsing in this area, which would have been a disaster. You can see to the left of the calvary the open ground over which the Germans were advancing.
