A map showing the marches and encampments of the Allied army and those of the French and Spanish armies in Brabant (Belgium) and the Netherlands between 14 May and 2 November 1703. War of the Spanish Succession (1701-14). Oriented with south-west to top.

The draughtsmen of this map, William Hall and George Morrison, under a warrant dated 3 February 1747, served as Engineers Extraordinary in Flanders in a special Engineers Brigade under the Duke of Cumberland in the War of the Austrian Succession (1740-48). This map appears to be copied from RCIN 725017; it includes the corrections made to RCIN 725017.

The area covered extends from the area around Anvers (Antwerp, Flanders, Belgium 51°13'11"N 04°25'12"E) to east of Maastricht (50°50'54"N 05°41'20"E) and from Lillo (Flanders, Belgium 51°18'15"N 04°17'24"E) to Namech (Namêche, Walloon Region, Belgium 50°28'20"N 04°59'51"E).
