One of last night's patrols under Lt Scott attempted to find a gap in the enemy's fwd posns and recce the ground behind them, but it was found that there was only about 20 yds between the enemy posts and it was not possible to get through without being observed.
The day on the whole has been a quiet one though there has been the odd exchange of mortar and arty fire and 'C' Coy suffered one casualty.
