Enemy machine gun again active and heavy rifle fire opposite No. 2 company at morning stand-to.

Patrols again saw nothing of importance.

During this tour of the trenches each company, under Brigade orders, constructed a dug-out to be used in the event of a bombardment. These works attracted a good deal of enemy artillery fire, but no real damage and no casualties resulted, and the work in each case was carried through successfully.

A new German 5.9. battery seems to have been installed behind G’de Ferme Du Bois Du Quesnoy, where there was already a 77mm gun, and fire was also directed for the first time on No. 4 company dug-outs in Collingbourne Avenue from the direction of La Brayelle.

These are situated facing S.W in a steep bank and had been well protected from fire hitherto directed entirely from Monchy and its neighbourood.
