6th Battalion News

Lieutenant Prickett

Thursday 16th March 1916: The adjutant of the 6th Battalion tells us that although they are in support near the town of Bienvillers-au-Bois, 300 men, about a third of the Battalion, are working in the front line repairing barbed wire, parapets, communication trenches and other vital things for defending the line. Lieutenant R Prickett arrived on 14th along with a returning Captain Blake meaning that the quota of officers is at full strength.
