Imagine two adjacent PBs. There is a Trench in one of the two hexes. Can a Unit in a PB use that Trench to Advance directly into the other PB if he's not starting in the Trench? If not, why?

The player in question is claiming that the Trench allows the Unit to Advance directly from one PB to the other (i.e. adjacent) PB.

You need to be "in" the trench in order to advance directly into a pillbox (bunker).

No. A Bunker may treat an adjacent Trench as an Accessible Location. It cannot treat a "Location-accessible-to-an-accessible Location" as accessible to itself!

So it is possible to move directly from the Bunker into a same-hex trench or into an adjacent hex trench.

So long as at least one of the bunkers in actually IN a trench hex, movement between the two adjacent bunkers would first require the unit to move out of the Bunker into the trench (or else into its own, non-trench Location).
