A map of the encampments of the Allied army at Terheijden after 15 June 1746. War of the Austrian Succession (1740-48). Oriented with south-east to top (compass rose).

This detailed topographical map showing roads, settlements, drainage, marshes and the extended lines of encampments of the Allied army to the north of Breda, gives similar information to RCINs 730042-6. It shows the additional detail of the ten battalions and ten squadrons of additional Hanoverian troops who arrived on 15 June, but not the further six battalions of Hessian troops who arrived on 4 July.
