Remembered Today:

Westminster bridge location? April 1918


Recommended Posts

Morning all,


Been a while since I visited this site but wondering if anyone can help me?


A bit of background, myself my brother and cousins traced our Grandfathers war through 1918 with the 1st Northamptonshires from joining the regiment Woesten to him being wounded on the Oise Sambre Canal. There was one location that we struggled to pin down and that was while the regiment were in the line in the Cuinchy/Givenchy sector in April 1918. We identifed the bridge known asVauxhall Bridge over the Canal d' Aire but can't identify the location of Westminster Bridge which know his company was holding, anyone able to help please?

Its on the Beuvry Sheet 36bNE2 F18a 5.7. The majority of maps (on Mcmaster) show as a footbridge, aprox 550yds north west of Vauxhall Bridge but map edition 7A(S) 1916  NA Trench Map Atlas names it.
