The Battalion relieved the 13th Kings Royal Rifle Corps, the platoon entering at 16:10hrs; relief completed at 17:29hrs. The trenches were found to be in far better state than during the last tour of duty. Two of the communication trenches however, Conduit Avenue and Central Avenue, were still waterlogged. A great deal of trench boarding had been put in position, and work was mainly devoted to sump pits and repair of dug outs – which suffered badly during the wet spell.

By arrangement with OC 6th Bedfords, in reserve to the Brigade, that Battalion found daily a ration party of sixteen men for each of the companies (except No 1 ‘B Company’). This arrangement, which was mutual and permanent, set more men free for work, and neutralised one of the disadvantages of having all four companies in the trenches.

The relief of No 1 Company was delayed for 30 minutes owing to enemy shell fire, which was also directed on No 4 Company while in Berlin Street, but no damage was done.

The enemy was unusually quiet.

Casualties: Nil
