Investigating My Grandfather’s Part in World War One

I have kept sane during the enforced Covid19 lock down by getting involved in projects that normally I wouldn't have time to complete. One such project is researching my grandfathers role in World War One. Below is a link to a summary of my research, including battle maps.

He fought at Poecapelle (Ypres 1917), Ypres, Kemmel Ridge, Arras, Cambrai and Valenciennes (1918). An incredible story. I have no idea how he survived.
