1st/4th London Regiment

To the best of my knowledge, this battalion were in the Falcon Support road, Northumberland Road, and Goat Trench on 23 Aug 1918. I imagine these places to be between Boyelles and Boisleux St Marc. Please could someone confirm this, or if wrong, tell me where these places actually were?

Correct although Falcon Trench is the only one mentioned in the regimental history. There is a map of the attack, not showing the British trenches, in The War History of the 4th Battalion, The London Regiment by Grimwade (reprinted by N&M Press at £22).

Thank you Bill!

Does this mean you happen to have the history of the 1st/4th London Regt?

Yup. My grandfather is mentioned in it several times. He was commissioned into them in July 1916.
