|Title||Boesinghe Canal and St-Julien (Langemarck): From Edmund Blunden's Minute Book.|
|Notes||Photographs of the Boesinghe Canal Bank 4, which Edmund Blunden notes was takend 'After the War. The canal lost itself in the later stages, but when we first saw it was broad, + real water'; 'Some of the bridge-building on the canal in the summer of 1917; postcards of the bombarded church at St-Julien (Langemarck) in 1914-1915, which was 'Taken by the 39th Div.' on 31 July 1917; and the village of St-Julien in 1914-1915, which, when the 11th Battalion Royal Sussex returned to in July 1917 Blunden notes was 'Then, nil.' The book was compiled by Blunden with the intention of providing complementary photographs supporting the narrative and poems of 'Undertones of War' (1928), and was inscribed 'E.B. New Year, 1935' while Blunden was living in North Oxford, a neighbour of Graham Greene.|
