Photography annotated by Henri Baudiment - Loos-en-Gohelle, on the 10th October 1915: "A barricade in a street".

The "great operations" were not long to come, and the 25th September offensive gave the kick-off to the 2nd Battle of Artois: the 90th Infantry Regiment took an active part to it:

" [...] on the 25 September, Loos fell down and was taken by the British, after a striking attack and a terrible tussle [...]

...[On the 10th]  during one whole hour of liberty, I could operate my Kodak, so I got some views on ruined Loos: I will keep them as a nice souvenir. Our deads of the 9th May were avenged on the 8th and on the 9th October [...]".
