Does anyone know the map coordinates and names of the trenches that made up the Music Hall Line ?

Thanx

Sorry highlight veered of towards the right at the bottom of the map, but you can still see the continuation of the Music Hall Line

Ed! ..............thank you very very much !

I have been perusing the collection at McMaster U. here in Hamilton and elsewhere, and come up dry.

So, looking at the map would it be fair to say that the Music Hall Line was more of a pathway than a trench, running north-south through Zouave Valley?

I always thought it referred to a defensive line of some sort but that is clearly not the case.

Might I ask when the map is dated to as well? 

Thanks again so much !

Graham

I believe the Music Hall Line became much more important/stronger in the summer of 1918, after the German offensive. There were also strong defensive positions constructed, some of which still exist, to the west of this.
