12th June 1915

On this day:

  • GOC Visit   The GOC 47th (London) Division, Major General C.St.V.L Barter came to Lapugnoy and addressed each Battery of the 6th London Brigade in turn. He expressed his gratitude to the Brigade for the splendid work it had done whilst in action, and his pleasure at the excellent work carried out by each officer and man, especially the Telephonists. He impressed on all ranks the need for keeping themselves in a clean and sanitary condition.

  • Monmouths return to front line   On the night of June 12 th they were back in the front line trenches taking them over from the 7th KRR 14th Division. On the whole this part of the line was not unpleasant but not free from casualties. Before the Monmouth's were relieved they had lost 7 killed and 32 wounded. The Monmouth's had two more tours in the front before leaving the area, thankfully the causalities for these periods was lighter with only 2 killed and 8 wounded.
