Once again our patrols report that the enemy posns on our front remain unchanged. Our snipers claim three certain hits and 'C' Coy standing patrol engaged several targets with their guns as well, but the result could not be observed with any certainty. Very heavy rain fell today and a lot of the slit trenches became waterlogged and all the tracks in the Regtl area extremely muddy.
