100th Anniversary Edition-13 battles-all points pictured-all with GPS locations
battle of Givenchy 1915 is an adjunct to the fighting
which is summarised under that heading. Actions in
the Givenchy area at that time were those involving
the Canadian Division, the 51st Highland Division
and the 47th Division in a drive above the Aire canal
towards la Bassee on 25 May 1915. Little progress
was made and the Canadians, furious at the frequent
jams of their Ross rifles, threw them away.
The Battlefield Tour
Guide Book describes a battlefield tour of just over one
hour that starts at the le Touret Memorial to the
Missing. The area is only 60 miles from Calais and
so is easily reached in a day.
Our New enlarged edition with GPS is due Spring 2014.
