Sheet 28, July 16

Recommended Posts

Wonder if any kind soul could help here. I am trying to assist a family regarding a Rifle Brigade man who died in July 1916.

Map references given are sheet 28, battalion was between U 1 c 16 and U 2 c 1 4 with a platoon put in Fletchers field and one at Osborn point.

Any assistance would be gratefully received.

Andy

Stiletto,

I got my last map reference question horribly wrong, so in an attempt to redeem myself I attach the following from the June 1916 Sheet 28, U 1 and 2.

Osborne Point is just south of Boyle's Farm. I can't find a Fletcher's Field but would imagine it is in above Gabion Farm. The built-up area at the top right is Messines.

Still valid though and I am still in contact with the family, so thank you Bartensabian.
