Can anyone help pin-point the position of the Casualty Clearing Station at Mazingarbe - used by Canadians and others - in August 1917? Were wounded men brought back here from Bois Hugo/Bois Rase area during the Battle for Hill 70?

I am particularly interested in casualties from 13th, 15th, 16th Btns Canadian Infantry.

Tricia,

Apart from suggesting near the railway line...not a lot....do you have a number of the CCS???

I ought to know more about what happened here after September 1915 but don't!!!

Our trusty Long Long Trail list for CCS has no entry for Mazingarbe ! I did a run on other towns,villages in the nearish vicinity and found none ! The suggestion from the description of the Mazingarbe Communal Cemetery is that burials were made there from dressing stations,no ref to CCSs. There are,you may know,4 burials from the 13th Bn CEF,5 from the 15th,and 4 from the 16th during Aug 1917,among others from various CEF units,in both the Communal Cemetery and it's Extension.

Do you think it worthwhile to check Archives Canada to see if they had specific CCSs there ?
