I have access to many of the standard sources concerning the attack on Scimitar Hill on the afternoon of 21 August. However, if possible I would like to get more detail as to the exact position and movements of the 1st Battalion, although I realize how soon things got confused and disorganized as the assault went forward. A trench map of their front would be great. Thanks
