62nd Trench Duty 24th – 27th March 1918

24.3.18 ANNEQUIN: Battalion relieved by 1/5th Sherwood Foresters in ANNEQUIN LOCALITY and relieved 1/8th Sherwood Foresters in the CAMBRIN SECTOR A.28.c.50.30 to A.21.d.70.50.

Note: I think that this is a mistake in the War Diary and it actually refers to A27d

Dispositions reorganised for expected enemy attack 25.3.18. Front line lightly held. Reserve line strengthened.

Battalion HQ moved to FACTORY TRENCH from No. 1 SIDING.

1/8th Sherwood Foresters held in close support.
