Ypres Sept 1917 Plank Track

The Menin Road 1917. Hell's Corner. A sight that would often greet the 20 year old Jack Wilson a machine gunner who served here from August to December 1917. Read his story, his five years in the armed services first in the infanrty, then in the Machine Gun Corps and finally training as a Fighter Pilot. He was even asked to join the Tank Corps but turned it down! All this at getjackback.wordpress.com/2011/07/12/morass-of-passchenda...
