Essex Farm

Essex Farm was the location of an Advanced Dressing Station and now is the site of a Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery. Due to its location near to the front line trenches, the station gave first aid care to the wounded before casualties were transferred to a Casualty Clearing Station. Essex Farm is the site where Canadian Surgeon, John Macrae, was inspired to write his famous poem “In Flanders Field”.
