War Diary [WO/95/2694]
The 5th Battalion continued work on the trench & look out posts & by daylight a trench of 5′ deep was dug and the look out post improved.
The lookout post overlooking the Crater was occupied by day. At 5 p.m. a combined bombardment by the Centre Group & 2″ Trench Mortar Battery on the Crater took place with apparently very good results.
The “Straaf” provoked little retaliation. The 6th Battalion Sherwood Foresters relieved the 5th Batt S.F. this evening. Work on the near trench continued.
