Seeking an expert's opinion as to the location of the 15th division's gun lines ( 18pdrs and howitzers)during the preliminary bombardment of enemy lines and during the battle of Loos in 1915. Many thanks. David.

Two additional bits of info that may help the right person to help with this. I believe it was probably northwards along the lane that leads from mazingarbe to Le Rutoire this give a range of about 1500 yds to the German first line and no-mans land or do any artillery experts think the lines were further back?i.e. towards Philosophe? I believe the guns would have been along or close to a trackway or road for access of ammunition supply and a speedy get away if needed? Hope an expert in the siting of artillery pieces can shed some light on this. Thanks. david
