The last man wounded in 1916 was 4109/241358 Pte William J Stevenson of “A” Company who later served with the Labour Corps.


31st: Enemy field battery shelled Green Street in the afternoon. A fortnight of bad weather has caused most of the inverted trench in the sector to fall in and the Communication trenches in the left sub sector. Nottingham Street and Lincoln Lane and St Martins Lane in the right sub sector are almost impassible.
