Sunday 31st October 1915: the adjutant of the 6th Bedfords tells us that 600 men of the battalion, about two thirds its strength, is engaged on digging trenches for cables behind the lines near the village of Souastre. This the fourth day this week that fatigue parties have been employed in digging whilst out of the front line supposedly resting.
