I have been reading the War Diary for the above on the 31st July 1917 for one of my chaps WILLIAM BOYD Pte G/34033 (fmly 4077 Essex Regiment. 


Does anyone have a map of the plan of attack. Reference is made to June and July Farms and later Bab Farm. Then Rifle Farm and the Shell Hole Line. 


I have transposed the entry from the War Diary but would like to have a plan to show

thanks for the link Ken. Very interesting but I have scanned it several times and cannot see any of the farms/olaces mentioned in the war diary

Nor could I, it might be worth looking at other maps in the series from earlier or later dates


I did find a sketch plan of a raid a couple of days earlier in one of the Brigade diaries but as I said nothing for the attack on 31 July, though I don't look at them all
