Aisne 1914 - Julien Farm, Ste Marguerite

Recommended Posts

Can any one pinpoint Julien Farm in or near Sainte Marguerite ( east of Soissons). It was used as a medical collection point by 2/Manchester in mid September 1914. It is not mentioned in the battalion or brigade war diaries.

Thanks

Charlie

Many thanks but that is the wrong Sainte Marguerite. I should perhaps have attached a road map as it is too far south for the McMaster maps.

Here's modern map of the village: looks like no Julien nowadays, just Montagne, possibly built-over. I have tried - unsuccessfully - to find if there is a road or similar with the name.

PS just realised lost part of map - let me know if important.

Many thanks Peter, the farm may not even have survived the war.
