Hill 70 was also known as Scimitar Hill


Regrettably I don't have my maps disc working at the moment and the best that I do is this crop which will identify the location 105 H 3 6 9


105 H is the square holding the top half of the figure 1 (of 105)

points 3, 6 & 9 in that square are on the right hand side

6 & 9 being within the top half of the figure 1 (of 105)

and 3 being immediately above that




It's not much but should be of some help

I've just seen your other thread - if this enquiry is also regarding 9th August 1915 then the map below which is from the British OH may also be of some help.

The sketch and map below are both from a little later in the campaign, but could still be useful.

The map is from 26th September 1915. Because of the scale however, it may give a better idea of the ground.

The sketch is by the C.O. of the 5th R.I.F., Lt-Col M J W Pike, and although it is as seen from a little further to the left of the point where your chap saw action, nevertheless it will provide some idea of the ground and how it looked at the time

[The map is from Appendix I, of the WD HQ 30th Inf. Brigade WO/95/4296

& the sketch is from the WD of 5th RIF WO/95/4296]

Thank you it’s always good to see from a image or a sketch as no matter how someone explains its hard to imagine.
