The consolidation of the BROADMARSH Crater was continued this evening & good progress made though the trench was not quite joined up at the North side. Two observations posts were established on the lip of the Crater, one which was occupied in the morning.

At 6.45 this evening the enemy sprang another mine, just S. of our sector, on the front of the 137th Bde.

Weather is now vile.

Both on the evening of the 16/17th and on the two following nights the 139/1 T.M. Battery did good work.
