A stood fast; and D Company moved farther west, down Kangaroo Alley.
The front line consisted of an untraversed and painfully broad and shallow communication trench, but the strength of the position lay in the excellently sited posts in rear, which, with the aid of one company of the 10th D.C.L.I. (Pioneers), who worked excellently, nightly during the tour, a continuous line was left on 4/5.12.17.
