Hello all,

I am looking for a reasonably high res trench map that covers Monchy Le Preux and the surrounding area in 1918 - preferably August 1918. 

If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it.

Kind regards

Redcoat

Hi there,

Its good but not quite what I am after. I have a map reference for where the 8th Canadian Infantry Brigade HQ ended Ops on the 26th August 1918. Its in H34 d Central whatever that means?

Cheers

Not quite sure why that couldn't have been in Post #1, but it means that in map 51b, square H the Brigade HQ was in the middle of square d:

Hi there,

Many thanks for that and apologies for not mentioning that reference in my first post - I wasn't thinking.

In any case, I just looked through the 8 CIB War Diary and found a map from the 26/08/1918 in the appendices. Would this be about right?

Cheers

Likewise RedCoat, my apologies for being a bit short with you!  Here is your map, with Monchy Le Preux shown on the right hand side
