A heavy mist prevented activity of snipers and allowed Lieutenant James Arthur Gravett, who went out with a patrol at 04:00hrs, to make a proper survey of the disused German trenches. The existence of shelters was confirmed. The trench was found to be some 250 yards along the Essarts road from trench 65. There are three trenches south of the road – 40, 100 and 150 yards in length, and one north (of the road) – about 400 yards. 200 yards along the road from trench 65, six pits were found of more recent work. A German paper, dated 26.09.15; a clip of German cartridges and a handkerchief with a coloured map of France and the German frontier, inscribed in print ‘KARTE VOM DEUTSCH-FRAZOISCHEN KRIEGSCHAUPLATZ, 1914’ proved snipers to have used them lately.

The Battalion was relieved by the 6th Bedfordshire Regiment. Relief commenced at 17:30hrs and was completed by 19:45hrs.
