Enemy snipers were more active today, but without success.

Two enemy shells landed on the parados (the embanked rear lip of the trench) and one on the parapet of trench 65. No damage. Ten shells were sent about midday in the direction of Hannescamps – Bienvillers road, but fell short.

A strong fighting patrol went out at 17:00hrs in two parties, and under two officers from trenches 64 and 65. They joined up in the open and advanced towards the old German trenches north and south of Essarts road. Here they took up a position and lay in wait for the enemy parties, which frequently occupy these trenches: but nothing was either seen nor heard.

Casualties: Nil.
