The Evening Hate 1915

Artillery placed hundreds of yards behind the trenches would fire shells at the enemy throughout the day. They would aim at trenches, or at roads and railways behind the lines.

The artillery often opened fire in the first few hours of darkness when enemy soldiers would be going on patrol, or moving from the front line to the reserves. This became known as “the evening hate”.
