13th Battalion, East Surrey Regt

Can anyone tell me where the 13th Battalion, East Surrey Regt. were in mid-September, 1917 please?

A reinforcement draft intended for the battalion was deviated on arrival in France and sent to the 9th King's Liverpools instead. I'm just wondering what the 13th East Surreys were doing or had been doing around that time.

Thanks in advance,

Pearse and Sloman say that from 1st September to 7th they were in the Villers-Plouich area, went to Brigade support in Fifteen Ravine 7-13th, then to 6 days in the Villers-Plouich Beacamp area which was "uneventful." Patrols went out every night. Relieved on 19 Sept and to Brigade Reserve in Gouzeaucourt and Dessant Woods. Training here until 25 Sept, then back to the frontline at Beaucamp/Villers-Plouich until the end of the month.
