    Comparatively quiet all day. Received orders at night that wiring was to be carried out along whole of Bde front, but this was cancelled by visit of Col TEMPLE now commanding Bde, who directed us to take up a position much as it had been when we first left VALLEY WOOD & moved forward again on the night 26th. Bn HQ in old position in DOUCHY BOIRY Rd 500x S of SUGAR FACTORY Rd. C Coy was left in its original position between IRISH GUARDS & Y&L. The idea of this move was in order to get the Brigade into a good position for purpose of relief.
