Day Seventy Six on The Somme

Thursday 14th September 1916: From our Correspondent in the Field

This evening we can hear the heavy growl of artillery and the staccato popping of rifle fire away to the west in the vicinity of the ridge-top hamlet of Thiepval. We understand that 11th Division are attacking the ridge. Meanwhile the 56th (London) Division have been digging assembly trenches south of Leuze Wood.
