Remembered Today:

Map of Mine Field


Recommended Posts

I came across this sketch map in the War Diary for 31st Infantry Brigade July/August 1915.


I think it might show the route of HMT Alaunia transporting the 7th Royal Dublin Fusiliers on 10/11th July 1915.

Would the circles with dots in them represent mine field locations or is this just some Artistic licence?

Regards Mark

Minefields, no. Germany didn't have U-boat minelayers at that point in the war. Possibly ship sinkings by U-boat though (torpedoed or stopped and scuttled).

Bst wishes,
