THE BATTLE OF GIVENCHY 1915

100th Anniversary Edition-13 battles-all points pictured-all with GPS locations

 

The Battle

The battle of Givenchy 1915 is an adjunct to the fighting at  Festubert 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

The 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.
