I have a question regarding initial setup of the BEF MG platoon. I suppose that statement: Set up in or adjacent to AG16 refers to the MG?
If yes am I correct that there is no way without moving it to shot from the hill to the approaching german forces because it cannot be placed on a hexside? So it can only protect town hexes in fact?
I'm not sure whether AH15 is a hexside or not, but IMO not

Correct, the MG is too far back from the crest to fire down at approaching infantry and AH15 is NOT a crest hex side.

Note: YS Scenario 1 had some errata that make a real difference. You can see the corrections in the scenario section of the rule book for Last Laurels at Limanowa. That's online at the Compass Website if you do not have it.

I took a picture of the errata section in Volume 2, for reference:

Thank you guys! I really like this game. It's amazing how nice it shows that initial massive advance changes to slow battle for each square meter of the land. Now I have finished day and night one of the scenario. Gulevelt is partially taken but both sides needs to work hard in upcoming days
