Hi,

 

I'am searching for a map of the attack of the 70 brigade (8th div) on 1-7-16 arround the Nab and the road to Ovillers.

I have trenchmaps but no good picture (map) of the attack of the 4 battalions.

We are visiting this area within a few weeks.

There's a map here in the Official History Vol 1 1916. It shows the 8th Division at the bottom of map. There may well be a better map and worth searching Click

Mike, nice reference and thanks for posting.  Took me 5 minutes to realise that scrolling downwards in the browser showed a PDF download button, so all saved for later reading.

Popke,

 

You might want to look in the 8th Div Diary and Apps, not yet checked. However the 23rd Brigade shows trench maps and details of the 70th Brig positions and attacks.
