4th Battalion at Bois d'Hollande

Tuesday 6th February 1917 from our correspondent in the field

The adjutant of 4th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment, reports that they have been occupying the old German front and second line trenches around Beaucourt-sur-Ancre which the Battalion took last November. Two companies have today pressed forward to the Bois d’Hollande and area north-west of it. They now hold a line facing north-east as shown in red on the map above
