New Munich Trench, Hawthorn Crater

Recommended Posts

Good Evening to you All

Could anyone tell me who constructed New Munich Trench? was it originally dug by German troops or was it dug by British troops?And just one more question, what was the time and date that Hawthorn Crater was blown for the second time in November 1916?

Your answers would be most helpful

Kind Regards

Andy

Hi Andrew.  My quick reference to a couple of my  books concerning the Nov 13 attacks states;

 

1.  The mine was blown on November 13 at 5.45 am.

 

2.  New Munich trench was dug by members of the 51st Div.

Andy,

51 Div war diary for 13/14th Nov. 1916 says 'During the night a trench, later names 'NEW MUNICH' was dug parallel to, and about 150 yards to the west of MUNICH TRENCH, and was occupied.'
