Hi Badger,

Egypt House / Farm was on the road that goes from Poelcappelle and Houthulst (N301) roughly between the former railway line to Staden and the crossroads.

Hope this is of some use

Best Wishes

And on a map, it is just south of the Houthulst Forest.

My pleasure,

If you are interested in visiting it is at 50°56'14.2"N, 2°56'28.8"E.

I must go myself soon and try to get a photo.

I am interested in it because it was used as Bn HQ for the 7th NF, which features on my web site.
