mre Posted 15 October , 2013 Share Posted 15 October , 2013 Hello, My Grandfather served with D (Derby) Battery 232 Brigade Royal Field Artillery from August 1916 till he was invalided out in June 1917. His diaries indicate that he was in the Arras area - Bienvillers au Bois, Monchy, Foncquevillers, La Cauchie, Grouches, Biez Wood, St Amand, Coullemont, Achicourt, Beaurains, Wancourt, Ronville, Tilloy and Berneville. I also have copies of the War Diaries for the 232 Brigade that I got from the National Archives so I have some information on locations and movements but no real detail. I am very keen to try an understand the geography of the area at the time and would like to visit it. I wonder if anyone could give me advice on any books or maps I could use to plan my trip? There is such a lot of information available in these Forums and on the Web that it's difficult to know where to start. As the Battle of Arras took place during the time my Grandfather was in the area I'm wondering if 'Walking Arras' by Paul Reed would be a good place to begin? Many thanks.
