Orders were received from Brigade for the Regiment to relieve the 1 RUR at BREVILLE on the 27th.
The day passed quietly, the troops preparing for the move while officers made recce's of the 1 RUR positions with a view to taking over.
The BREVILLE position seemed to be an exceptionally strong one and far more comfortable than that at Le Mesnil.

Good news was received about the progress on the main front.
The Regiment reinforced its diet with a few chickens which would otherwise have starved after negotiations with the local mayor.
