Major J.F. GRESHAM arrived from L.O.B. in the morning to take over the Battalion.
The enemy now identified at 9 S.S. had apparently withdrawn, and save for a few shells whenever passing vehicles raised dust on the road, all was quiet.
Companies got some well-deserved sleep and the usual dreary process of accounting for casualties and indenting for replacements, weapons and kit was put in motion.
The action had cost the Battalion some 130 casualties (including 36 killed).
