Original caption
AFTER THE BRILLIANT VICTORY AT CARENCY.—The capture of Carency, or the Battle of Arras, constituted a great triumph for our French Allies. For many weeks the 9th Army was secretly reinforced with young recruits, guns, and ammunition. While the Germans were fully employed against the British near Lille and at Ypres, General Maud'huy began a second bombardment of the hill of Notre Dame de Lorette, and followed it up with a sweeping infantry attack along a front of ten miles. This exclusive photograph shows the entrace to what was once Carency, with some French Chasseurs lying where they were shot down before the German barricades.

Wikipedia for Schools is one of SOS Childrens Villages' many educational projects. SOS Childrens Villages believes education is an important part of a child's life. That's why we ensure they receive nursery care as well as high-quality primary and secondary education. When they leave school, we support the children in our care as they progress to vocational training or higher education. If you'd like to help, why not learn how to sponsor a child?
