I changed my mind. I set the previous question so I'll keep on biting my tongue and let someone else discover this one.

Ik heb geen idee :wacko:

you were born somewhere near Potijze???

I have my trench maps, google maps, my IGN map 28 etc and cannot find a farm with a Hungarian name or any cemetery built by the Monmouthshire regiment in that area.

Am I totally in the wrong area? shall I give up now??

perhaps someone who knows more can put me out of my misery.

I've just noticed, I'm now a Captain - when did that happen?

come one try

OK, mine is a little nearer to home (for me anyway) - my clues are:

1 - situated in 'middle' England but vital to efforts in the Western Front.

2 - could be found in a forest and mostly made of wood, a lot of wood.

3 - in 1915 a talented battalion helped the local team to do very well.

This shouldn't prove too difficult, :whistle:

Close to Fields - but one evening too close for comfort!
