September 25th was fine. At 2.00a.m. the Hun raided an unoccupied outpost on our front. His attack was repelled and he gained no information. The following casualties were sustained by the battalion: – Killed in Action. 3056081 Private Heath, W. Wounded 2 Other ranks. The remainder of the day passed quietly and the Battalion was relieved by the 5th Yorkshire and Lancanshire Battalion and elements of the 1/5th London Rifle Brigade on the night of 25th/26th September.
During the operations on preceding days Liaison was very indifferent, consequently elements of units, brigades, and even divisions were mixed. And until the correct disposition of these were collected no individual or concentrated effort could possibly be successful. The morning was spent on this. Gas shelling by the enemy was continued and his heavy guns played on Inchy. Later during the day orders were received that relief of the Bn. would be effect by the 29th Battalion. An enemy counter-attack considerably delayed completion of relief and not until the early hours was it accomplished.
