Thank you Frank. So to get this straight the nerve courses laterally through the greater sciatic foramen and courses inferiolaterally through the Gluteal region and the structures anterior to it are the iliopsoas, the inferior and superior gemellus, quadratus femoris muscles, the femoral vessels and the lateral cutaneous nerve and the bony structures anterior to it are the acetabulum of the femur, neck of the femur...... Am I right sir?

Kehinde, there are some other structures - but that is a lot! By the way, its the greater sciatic notch (not the foramen). But that seems about it!
