Jim. Here's what I found thanks to the N&MP NA Atlas. As Des said, it's close to Auchonvillers .......... west of there and east of Beaumont-Hamel.

Thanks ulsterlad & desmond7. I have re-read my copies of the war diary entry and realised where i went wrong. I have been searching the area around Hedauville, where in fact they were billited before going into line. I will pay more attention to what i read in future. Once again thank you both for your time. Regards. JIM
