Lost in Tilloy

According to Major John Ewing's book on the Royal Scots the battalion was located near Locon. On the 2nd was seeking to strengthen its position by advancing their line to a hedge near Pont Tourant. The attack was successful with the exception of a German machine gun post located in an orchard that caused trouble. On the 4th of May "A" company attacked the position but the Germans responded with a "violent barrage, causing considerable losses" throughout the battalion along the line. Although the machine gun post wasn't dealt with a German infantry attack was repelled.
