After a quiet night the unit started checking up on a few administrative details, checking over kit and equipment and making sure that everything was in fighting order.
During the evening the Regiment were spectators of the "closing of the BREVILLE gap" in the NW of the outer crest of the Divisional defences. This was accomplished in a most spectacular manner with a "Corps" Artillery shoot as a preliminary to the attack and occupation by infantry.
The men had a rough bath - the first since leaving England.
