10 December 1916

The battalion is entrenched at Sailly-Saillisel

Very wet again. Trenches getting worse. At night, the battalion relieved the 1st Royal Irish Fusiliers in the front line. Comapnies after relief were distributed as follows: A coy left front, B coy right front, C and D companies were in support, C coy coming into trenches neear Battn HQ and D coy remaining in its previous position. The front line trenches were in a really very bad state, and A and B companies spent their first night in digging men of the Risih Fusiliers out of the mud, where in some cases they had been stuck for ten hours. All the company work, was done by the two companies in support in the night.
