Sint Jin Wieltje Trench maps Oct 1916 - March 1917

I wonder if anyone has copies of trench maps from the Sint Jin - Wieltje area of Ypres around the dates shown? The War diaries mention a raid on the German trench Kaiser Wilhelm around this time and I'd like to field walk the area where my Grandfather was for these 5 months. Any help greatly appreciated

 

I am going to the area in August this year so if anyone would like headstone photographs from either Oxford Road, Weltje Farm or Buffs Road cemeteries then just ask and I'll do my best

Is 'Kaiser Wilhelm' the same feature as 'Kaiser Bill',  a salient in exactly that area?

There is every chance Ian. I will recheck the war diaries. Do you know exactly where the salient was please or have a map with it on?
