7th Battalion Back to Old Haunts

Saturday 10th February 1917 from our correspondent in the field

The adjutant of the 7th Battalion spoke with me at some length with me today, telling me, with a certain grim relish, that they had returned to the site of one of their old victories - the sorry muddle of holes in the ground that was once Thiepval. They are in dug-outs, except for C Company which inhabits the old German position of Stuff Redoubt. At night the Battalion will be employed in night fatigues in the vicinity of the front line around .
