111 Machine Gun Company (if that is what you mean ) were with 37 Division at the Battle of the Second Scarpe at the end of April, a few days prior to Arleux, so likely to be in the same area.

If that is indeed so you will get a precise answer from it's War Diary which is at Kew under WO95/2534 (Mar16 to Feb18).

The Battle of Arras was fomally decared closed on 17/5/17, and with that; one can assume 37 Div. were in the rear resting on the 27th-they had suffered 6286 casualties in April 1917 alone.

I see no reason for 111 Mcgun Co. to be detached, unless you know differently.

It would seem they had two sections in the support line near Tilloy according to the WD. See below. No mention of casualties.

Let me know if you're after any further info.
