Trenches came into widespread use in 1914 as a way for soldiers to protect themselves against the firepower of modern weaponry. Over time, they developed into huge networks. As shown here, trenches were given names to help identify them. Sometimes these names related to familiar places from home.  "A sentry of the 10th Gordons at the junction of two trenches.  Gourlay Trench and Gordon Alley.   Martinpuich, 28 August."
