Destroyed German gun, near Feuchy (Arras sector), May 1917. The preliminary bombardment before the battle of Arras was the first large counter-battery success enjoyed by the BEF. This destroyed gun is part of that success; its concrete gun position did not save it from thorough counter-battery work. The British soon realized that success required thorough planning, many guns, and very large quantities of shells.
