Advanced Dressing/Clearing Station Menin Road - 1 to 8 Aug 17

Hello All, 

Wondered if anyone has come across the Trench Map Reference for Advanced Dressing/Clearing Station Menin Road between 1 and 8 Aug 17. I believe it was managed by the 113 Field Ambulance, 16th Div. Nothing specific that I can see in the War Diaries.

The War Diary ADMS HQ 16th Div  3rd Aug 1917 has an ADS at Menin Road at I9d 3.6

If it's I 9 d 3.4 it is still there, in private grounds adjacent to Menin Road South cemetery. Apparent from concrete and old brickwork, now used as a garden store. Can be seen from within the cemetery.

If I 9 d 3.6, must have been on the other side of the road.

Brilliant. Cheers guys. Don't suppose you can steer me to the reference Edward? 

 

Are any 16 Div Burial Returns etc. available? I interested in burials in Menin Road South Military Cemetery between 1 Aug and 12 Aug 17.

The school shown on this map; known as L'Ecole Bienfaisance was used as various types of dressing station, collecting post, rest station for much of the war, the grounds occupied a lot of square I.9.C.
