Guillemont Sept. 1916

1) 11/RB account 3/4/Sept.1916
2) Situation of massed Div's waiting for the barrage to lift on Guilemont prior to attack.
3) Situation on the 4th. before being relieved.
You can see on the link that there are no British trenches visible only German(red).
The reason being that the British had fought their way from the outskirts of Albert at the beginning of the Somme offensive & were fighting pretty much in the open & only availing themselves of protection from captured trenches, woods & sunken roads.
