Remembered Today:

Trench Maps at the IWM


Howard

Recommended Posts

A project has been running at the IWM since March to catalogue their collection of trench maps. Until now, much use has been made of the expertise of the staff to find maps but a decision was made to add them to the computerised listing.

With three other volunteers, I have been involved with this work. Intermediate results are shown on the WFA web site, links below.

There is also a feature based on old CWGC data that enables trench/town/village names to be found. The data used is not complete but can be useful.

For a list of trench maps, click here

For the trench/village/town name finder, click here.

Please note the health warnings on each page, it is almost certain there are errors. We try but are only human.

Any feedback on the usefulness of this project would be appreciated.

Howard,

Well done!

One suggestion that comes to mind is for that search ability to be added to the Trench map CD. It would make my work a little easier

That would be for N&M to do. The CD says "IWM", they own the maps but N&M publish the CD.

The list of maps on the CD is below if that is of any use.

I am not sure how to get it to line up on in a forum post but if you PM me I can send a spreadsheet. If you cut and paste the list here into something like Notepad (on a PC) and save the file as a CSV, Excel will then open it ok.
