Remembered Today:

"Observatory Redoubt"?

Please can anyone tell me what this was?  It is mentioned in the War Diary of the 15th Battalion Royal Warwicks for 9/5/16 when they were in Arras. 

The diary says "enemy persistently shelled OBSERVATORY REDOUBT preventing working party from repairing damages" (the words are written in capitals in the Diary). 

I am particularly interested in this entry as it was the day my grandfather was injured
