Regimental H.Q. in MONUMENT RAVINE.
Six very pleasant, enjoyable, and quiet days (save for two trench-mortar bombardments of the front line) passed without incident. The weather enabled full use to be made of the trenches as thoroughfares, thereby yielding the advantages of (a) Free movement all over the area by day; (b) Being able to avoid overland movement, which resulted in reduced shelling.
The area was taken over was difficult to find the way about, in that trenches were labelled, either not at all, or so that they did not agree either with the official maps the Divisional scheme. To some extent this was rectified.
