Hi can anyone tell me if Authuille Wood and Theipval wood are the same Woods??

 

im trying to locate the woods that the 11th Sherwood Foresters attacked from on the 1st day of the Somme but keep getting interchanging names when researching the woods

Thanks

Ryan

Thiepval Wood/ Bois d'Authuille are, I believe, one and the same.
