On 31 July 1917, during the opening day of the Third Battle of Ypres, aided by two tanks, the 46th Bde attacked Frezenburg village, before a party from the King’s Own Scottish Borderers outflanked the enemy position. The 11th Highland Light Infantry came under fire from enemy positions at Square Farm, Hill 35 and Frost House. After the 1/7th King’s took Square Farm, the 11th HLI took Low Farm, but were checked by fire from Pommern Castle and Hill 35.
