Trench map needed - 1st North Staffs Reg

9 posts in this topic

I am trying to find the location of two trenches mentioned in the 1st Bn North Staffs Regiment in relation to their attack on 31st July 1917.

They are (including all spellings on written accounts) Jehova/Jehovah/Jehovas/Jehovahs Trench and Jordan Trench. Both are south of Shrewsbury Wood and Bulgars Wood.

There is also mention of a place called (again 2 spellings) Immage/Image Cresent/Crescent. I cant find any mention of it anywhere.

Any help would be very much appreciated as always

Thank you for that map. That crosses off two of the three mentioned, just Jordan Trench to find now.
