No record in the 1/6th Battalion War Diary [WO/95/2694]
11/X/17: Hostile artillery more active on left sub section, probably owing to our 4.5″ howitzers cutting wire in H26d.
12/X/17: Considerable individual movement behind enemy’s lines of men in marching order. This possibly point to a relief. Six patrols were out during the night.
13/X/17: Exceptionally quite day, except for a light barrage of 77 mm and 105 mm on left sub sector at 12 noon. Six patrols out during the night. The enemy does not appear to send out patrols.
14/X/17: Hostile artillery active during the night in reply to our harassing fire on communications. Enemy has dug a trench in advance of his front line in H32d, but does not appear to occupy it.
15/X/17: Some gas shelling of LOOS otherwise little hostile activity. Enemy’s attitude appears to be entirely defensive. Considerable movement of small parties – some of them in marching order – behind enemy line.
