KernelPanic Posted 16 June , 2019 Share Posted 16 June , 2019 (edited) Here are three excerpts from May and June 1915. 1) What does the ‘X’ (red ovals) refer to? A first I thought it was ‘cross-roads’, then I wondered ‘side’ as in right side, left side. But neither seem to make much sense. Then in the third panel there is “Left X 2000x”, "Rt X 1700x". I presume the subscript x refers to ‘yards’, but I’m at a loss with the X. Any ideas? Is it just 'position'? 2) Does the abbreviation in the blue ovals refer to railway? 3) In the second and third panels there are references to 'wagon lines'. Would those be the ammunition supplies, or general brigade supplies, or impossible to know? 4) The author of the diary for April – June 1915 didn’t use the usual map coordinate system when referring to locations, only place names, compass references (N, S, SW etc), and distances. Is this unusual? I would have thought the map coordinate system would have been required.
