Seventy Sixth Day of the Third Battle of Ypres

Sunday 14th October 1917

There has been little action around Ypres today, other than the usual sound and fury of war - artillery registering targets, sniping, and between the showers, the occasional drone of an aeroplane. No German counter-attacks on the gains of 12th have been made. The only fighting has been 37th Division’s capture of an enemy post south of the Menin Road. This did not involve 6th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment, which is resting behind the lines in a camp at Westouter, south-west of Ypres.
