I dont think there are any in this thread,but where can i find some maps of the marine divisons in WW1 on the western front(it was only there right and not the others,forget?).Like maybe small units overseas with the navy or in china etc...,and it was only the 1st and 2nd marine divsions that where stationed near the coast of belguim i think right only and stayed there most of the war.

Another while im here,are there any records of how many men they lost in WW1,like maybe not as many as the other divsions possibly being closer to the coast.But then think i read somewhere they did go further inland(not shure how far?) and fight in the trenches there,thanks for any info.
