William Frederick Day served with the 74th (SA) Siege Battery SAHA and was wounded 2nd September 1918 probably near St Rohart factory as one of nine men wounded and three men gassed on the 1st and 2nd.

See the original post at http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/i...howtopic=104005

From Snell's history of the Canadian Army Medical Corps "a [tram] loading post and temporary advanced dressing station was established near St. Rohart Factory at O.15.c.8.2” through St. Rohart Factory was at O.15.a.

St Rohart does not appear on Via Michelin

Thank you

It was just off the Arras-Cambrai road just west of the village of Vis-en-Artois. There is no trace of it now at ground level.

Thanks a lot.

All six guns had just moved to St Rohart Factory (three on 31st August and three on 1st September) from Guemappe and on the 3rd of September 1918 would move on to Dury.
