Enemy sniper activity was again observed, especially along the sector assigned to C Company where Private Alfred Wiseman was killed, and two other men wounded at short intervals.

WISEMAN, ALFRED
Rank: Private
Service No: 15678
Date of Death: 11/10/1915
Age: 20
Regiment/Service:The Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, 10th Bn.
Grave Reference: II. A. 3./ BIENVILLERS MILITARY CEMETERY

The German working party in front of Ouvrages Blancs was again busy at day-break, but dispersed when rapid fire opened upon them.

Another attempt to investigate the new strongly held trench along Essarts
Road was made during the night of 11/12th October. Four patrols were formed,
each comprising of an NCO and three men, the whole under the command of
Lieutenant A Proctor.

The patrols were sent from trenches 64 and 65 at 1630hrs, and proceeded to reconnoitre the ground thoroughly. Lieutenant Proctor took his party some 800 yards along the Essarts Road, but found only a disused line of trenches – the existence of which was already known. This he paced out as being 250 yards from the northern listening post of trench 65. The new line of German trenches was proved as being non-existent. The patrols returned without casualties.
