Another WW1 map.......this map is actually a “medical map”, showing where all the medical facilities, routes etc were......but it’s a great map to show some key points from Capt’s narrative.

In Blue circles, you see the two points “behind” the lines where the Battalion was prior to the battle, and then in the red circle, you can see the “target” of Pilkem. This is to the North of Ypres
