Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if I can find out where Nathan Leggett was origionally buried as it says in his records that he was buried opposite railway embankment at U.28d.8.2. Does anyone have a map with this location on it,he was killed on the 3rd May 1917 near Bullecourt.

Many thanks,

Ian.

Dont have a map , but I reckon from the description it would be the railway embankment that runs along in front of Bullecourt and can still be walked today . I have posted a modern map of it on another thread and if I can find it I will send you the link "MO"

how hard do you think it would be to find the spot today?

Are the grey and red lines all trenches and why are they two different colours?

Do you know why it is called a railway reserve & the one next to the spot is support?

Lastly where would the german trenches have been?

Sorry about all the questions but I am trying to make sence of the map.

Thanks again Jon.

Ian.

Kind regards

Ian it would be very easy to find that spot and I have walked by it often while following the exploits of the 24th Battalion. I do have photos of the area but I cant access them at the moment. In the meantime this may help ;) "MO"
