I was in Ypres for the same period but travelled the Monday through the wind and rain! I also had a plod around the Frezenberg area on Wednesday.

Can anyone confirm the position of 2 East Yorks Btn on 8th May 1915. My own research has their trench line somewhere in the area of Aeroplane Cemetery on that day. One of my relatives Private William JACQUES went missing in battle that day and just want to confirm the general area to the best of my ability.
