In the early stages of research for a project with In Certain Places connected to Preston war memorial and local history archives. Started to look at first hand accounts of the trenches, and was shown a hand written journal at the Museum of Lancashire which included this map.  I used to live in a house called ‘Guillemont’ so kept noticing the name. There was action at both Gillemont farm and a place called Guillemont, but the writer seems to have used the second spelling in the journal to refer to this farm, so the death of a soldier on Preston Roll of Honour isn’t connected to this as I’d first thought.

Interested in the route marked on the map, and the implication that this map was used to plan the attack.
