Page 219 of 'XXI: The Crash of Pillars' section from a first edition of 'Undertones of War' (1928). This section describes Ypres and the battle at Passchendaele where Edmund Blunden was stationed with the 11th Royal Sussex between December 1916 and December 1917. The volume was written, apart from the help of a few maps, entirely from memory while Blunden was teaching in Tokyo between 1924 and 1927. Annotations in Blunden's hand added later at an unknown date. He writes, 'I remember him saying, he must have his Clock', and draws a diagram of his and his fellow officers' positions within the pillbox.
