Edmund Blunden in Poperinge - in the beginning of 1917

from Undertones of War, page 182:

The Brigade was withdrawn to Poperinghe for rest We had our meals where we wished, and I chose a little table in the “British Hostel,” where the gramophone was chiefly employed on a minuet by Boccherini and something “Hawaiian”—not bad accompaniments (for the uncritical young) to Madame’s chickens and wines.
