This is a very usefull image for myself as its an area that many of my 1st battalion Wilts lads would have been familiar with in the July / August period 1917.

If i am right the Battalion was first in the area (Hooge) in November 1914 when the Batttalion diary recorded

"Roads very muddy and conjested with traffic", i wonder how many of those who were there in 1914 could actually believe it was the same place 2 1/2 years later?

Many thanks again

Bob

Looking at the map in post #5 I'd say this (see arrow) is Allenstein Crater 2011.

Cnock,

when I stand at the tunnellers memorial at railway wood,I have often wondered about the blown mine crater/pool just behind,have you any info on that,as you walk past the scotish memorial down the little overgrown lane heading to to the menin road both sides in the woods are lots of shell holes craters.

Hi Biff,

I have been there to, I had some info on that crater, but will have to search for it...

were these craters caused by shellfire (they look pretty large for a shell) or tunneling?

Roel, caused by tunnelling and firing mines
