I'd need informations on the breakthrough on the German Army in march 1918 and for the rest of the year in the Authuille-Thiepval sector ?

What are the Britsih unities in this sector ?

I prepare an exhibition for next year.

Thank you to helping me

Hi Rachel

Some of the British battalions, what was left of them that fell back to Authuille by the 25th/26th March 1918 were 2nd Battalion Highland Light Infantry, 2nd Battalion Ox& Bucks Light infantry and the 24th Battalion Royal Fusiliers who were also known as the 2nd Sportsmen,all part of the British 5th Infantry Brigade,The 5th Infantry Brigade were part of the 2nd Division.There were many more British units which also passed this area at that time. I hope this is a start for you.
