Remembered Today:

Eagle Trench

Hi all,

I'm hoping some one out there will have a knowledge as to where Eagle Trench was situated in the St.Julien area i know it was in the region of Marsouin Farm but ive 

been unable to locate it on a St.Julien map from June/July 1917, my relative was there in the October/November 17, so i'm just wondering if Eagle Trench wouldn't have

been marked on the map in the June or July of 17 or even if that particular trench didn't exist at that point?

 

i've a attached a screen shot of the area of the map where Marsouin Farm is as a reference point, but any information or ideas would be very welcome and appreciated.

 

Thanks

Russ.

 Eagle Trench 20SW4.U.23 is NE of Langemark. Eagle trench 28NE1.E.13 is east of St Julien, Marsouin Farm is at 28NW2.C.8

Thank you all for you're help! much appreciated, i was just trying to work out a rough distance from Marsouin Farm to Eagle Trench. I was making the

mistake of thinking both would be on the St.Julien  section of map i had come across!
