Map: Sheet 62D SE, Edition 3B (Local), 1:20000, GSGS 2742, 11 July 1918

This map of the Amiens area is annotated to show the stop and start lines and approach to the night attack on Proyart, August 1918.

It belonged to Captain Daniel Hickey of the Tank Corps who led No. 7 Section of 'B' Company, 8th Tank Battalion, during the Battle of Amiens (8-12 August 1918). The Proyart operation was the first ever night attack by tanks, but it was poorly planned and resulted in heavy casualties for the tank crews and supporting infantry.
