The text beneath the map reads:
The German rush across the Yser-Ypres canal has been checked at Lizerne and opposite Boesinghe. Within the area of the battle, are Steenstraate, Het Sast, Pilkem, St. Julien, and Langemarck, all of which the Germans claim to have captured. The battle continues on the right bank of the canal and at St. Julien.
