I'm lost!! Can anyone please give me a rough idea where men from the 1/5th Battalion Loyal North Lancs and men from the 2/South Lancs would have been fighting on 5th June 1915. I am hoping to find both of them close together, i believe they were both near Hooge but I am not completely sure.A rough guesstimate is welcome

Many thanks

1/5th loyals were moving upto the area of St.Jean,Ypres from being in hutments to the "NW of Ypres", being fully operational in these trenches on June 6th, and the 2/S.Lancs were in the area of Hooge/Sanctuary Wood.

Hope this helps,

Dave.

(PS...I've got the regimental histories of both of these regiments listed in the "Document repositry" on this forum if you need any further details)

Dave,

Thanks now can you give me a rough idea of how far apart these places are? Would they have perhaps shared the same hospital/casualty station? I am utterly hopeless!!!

Best wishes

Roughly, I'd say about 2 or 3 miles apart "as the crow flies". Yes, they could have shared the same CCS, I suppose.
