Ninety Eighth Day of the Third Battle of Ypres

Monday 5th November 1917

There has been no action here today and nothing has been heard from Palestine. We conclude that the consolidation work after the Third Battle of Gaza continues. The 1st Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment has been in support at Top Top and Stirling Castle just south of the Menin Road near Hooge for the last five days. They were relieved this afternoon though a party of one officer and thirty other ranks has remained behind to carry trench mortar ammunition up to the front line. In its time in support the Battalion has had one officer and four other ranks wounded.
