Success in Competition

Thursday 7th March 1918

1st/5th Battalion is at Mulebbis(1) in Palestine. Yesterday two platoons of B Company left as an advance party, working for the Royal Engineers. Yesterday was also the final day of the divisional tournament at Yazur(2) and the commanding officer and several other officers went to see competitions. Number 15 Platoon was second overall in the tournament and Number 5 Platoon were ninth - creditable results considering that around thirty units took part.
