“On the 16th August the French and British attacked again in fine weather, and took all objectives, including Langemarcke, with the capture of lots of prisoners and guns.”
The Battle for Langemarcke officially lasted for three days and concluded on the 18th. It was yet another temporary success for the allied forces, but seemed significant at the time.
