There was a great deal of work to be done in the Front Line as is always the case after an attack. The trenches had been badly knocked about and a lot of salvage and general cleaning up was necessary.
Also a new sap (Guildford Trench) was in course of construction. This sap ran in the direction of the German line and from the end of efforts were made to digout and join up with the Guards Division which was now holding a portion of HOHENZOLLERN REDOUBT. A party of C Company had started making the Guildford Trench on the night 13/14 Lt Ridout and Lt Mills having been wounded in this fatigue. Strong fatigue parties were at work every night on this trench and its extension which was ultimately connected with the Guards Division.
A party of A & B companies were at work all this night doing fresh wiring on both sides of the new sap and during early morning of October 15 a German Officer and one German Private walked into this party and were taken prisoners.
