Remembered Today:

Bois Celestins (or Celestines)


Recommended Posts

One of the few references I can find to the Bois is in the war diary of 17/Manchester but it gives no real clue as to where it was. I guess in the far back area some miles behind Maricourt (further back than a normal relief place). Must also be next to a river as my chap drowned in it on 2 June 1916

Anyone come across it?

Thanks to both.

Makes perfect sense now as the chap is buried at Chipilly. I'd been thrown by the statement on the CWGC site that it was used by field ambulance - so had rather assumed that he had been taken there in the hope that he hadnt actually snuffed it.
