Remembered Today:

Where would I find?

Can any forum member tell me where the following location is in the Salient?

"Hellblast Corner"

I am currently reading a history of the 2nd/2nd City of London Field Ambulance. In the history they make reference to Hellfire Corner, Sharpnel Corner with which I am familiar. But not Hellblast Corner.

Thanks in advance

Martin :rolleyes:

Hello,

It's in Zillebeke. Have a look at this.

Jan

BTW "Hellblast" is soldier's language for "Hallebast", the local name for this point.

Hellblast Corner was at Zillebeke, at the confluence of the road running south from Hellfire Corner and a road heading west from Zillebeke.

I can scan that part of the trench map for you if you wish and e-mail it off forum.

Regards

John Milner
