The term 'trench map' on this forum generally refers to the areas on the western front where the British Army fought, although all armies had their own maps.

Yours will have printed on it Map 51b and covers the Arras area. A full index of coverage is provided by McMaster University and the attached image shows the trench maps that cover much of France / Flanders.
