Achiet-le-Grand Casualty Clearing Station No. 45

Edie's service record (see below) shows her transferring to CCS 45 in August 1917 but this is a period for which we have no diary.  Volume 3 ends on 15 November 1916 and Volume 4 doesn't start until 21 June 1918.

Philippe Drouin, who lives in Achiet-le-Grand, contacted us in October 2008 to say:

"I did a website www.achiet-le-grand.org but unfortunately I haven't been able to find diary, photos etc. of 45th and 49th CCS at Achiet except a German arial photo of it. I hope it will be some kind of interest and maybe you will be able to help me in my research".

Googling 'Achiet-le-Grand CCS 45' doesn't produce anything much but if you know otherwise I'm sure M. Drouin would be pleased to hear from you.  He can be contacted via his website: www.achiet-le-grand.org.

The Long, Long Trail website (http://www.1914-1918.net/ccs.htm) shows both CCS 45 and CCS 49 located at Achiet-le-Grand between April 1917 and March 1918.
