Twentieth Day of the Third Battle of Ypres

Sunday 19th August 1917

Again there has been no rain today, though it has been cloudy. Today 48th (South Midland) Division has made a determined attack, assisted by a number of tanks. They have taken four strongpoints which had held up their attack on Thursday - Hillock Farm, Maison du Hibou, Triangle Farm and Cockcroft. The enemy is thought to have taken very heavy casualties and all four tanks are reported to have returned from the fight.
