Four Figure Trench Map Co-ordinates

Recommended Posts

Paul Chapman

Good afternoon,

I am attempting, without much luck, to pinpoint - or as near as possible - two map co-ordinates regarding exhumations; they refer to Ypres, 1917. References 28.I.16.b.5.5  and  28.I.16.d.5.5   : I believe them to be in the vicinity of Gordon House - Leinster Farm, and within a few feet of each other. Can anyone assist with a positioning of these please?

Well, unless there's an error somewhere the 2nd ref is 500 yards South of the 1st.

And they are both indicating a 50x50 yard square.

Both are 50 yard squares 500 yards apart as TEW notes above.

I made yellow dots to mark the general area and yes they are both near Gordon House.

Here's the current views of both areas from streetview.

Hi Paul,

If you go to preview.tmapper.com you can convert these yourself and select different trench map overlays from the National Library of Scotland.  I chose a Street View location roughly halfway between the two and a May 1917 trench map:
