The unusual inactivity of the enemy, combined with the sound of traction heavier than that heard nightly behind Gommecourt wood, suggested that an enemy relief must be in progress.

A patrol sent out from trench 60 to the scene of the conflict with the enemy patrol two nights ago, met and heard no-one.

Three privates attached to the 178th Tunneling Company, Royal Engineers, were this day killed by an enemy explosion. Other casualties nil.

Two of those killed were;
