Between 27th and 31st December, 4th Middlesex, 8 Brigade, 3rd Division, were in the front line at Kemmel, just south of Ypres. The conditions were awful. Heavy rain caused the trenches to collapse and it was so cold that 46 men were sent to hospital with frostbite. Added to all this misery was hostile enemy activity, mainly in the shape of artillery and snipers. 20 men were killed or missing.
