Ninety Fifth Day of the Third Battle of Ypres

Friday 2nd November 1917

The adjutant of 1st/5th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment, cabled us to say that yesterday was spent in preparing for the operation and everyone rested as much as possible, the divisional commander (Major-General S W Hare) speaking with all officers about 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon
