The main action involved a night attack on the 29th/30th October. With the rest of the Brigade, a long cross country march now began to keep in contact with the enemy ending with the attack on Monte Camino between 10th November and 2nd December.
Because of casualties the Battalion was reformed into two companies around 29th November, being expanded to three companies when reinforcements arrived on 13th December.
