11 West Yorks, A Coy - Zillebeck or Gheluvelt - Sep 1917

Good evening, Pals

I have downloaded Sep 17 WD for 69 MGC. Around 20 Sep a sub sect comd by 2Lt Holloway was in sp of A Coy 11 West Yorks. The detail is very faint, but looks like 'Strong Point C - The Chateau'.

Does anone have a trench map showing this area?

Cheers

Chris

Thanks, John, makes sense (Clapham Junction appears as a location elsewhere in the OpO and POR, as does JASPER Trench. However, I thought Hooge Chateau had long gone by time of Third Ypres. Would the location have retained the name, despite the absence of original building? Hmm, why not? :huh:

On all the trench map overlays at 1:10000 the Chateau at Hooge is marked as if it was still there into 1918 and I suppose references to the area would still use the name even though it had basically disappeared.
