A Minor Trench Raid

Lead a patrol into “No Man’s Land” night of December 1/2, 1916.


Report on Minor raid, Night of Dec. 1/2.

18th Canadian Battalion

Our patrol advanced within short distance of enemy wire but no party were there, so we lay in wait for several hours hoping it would appear.


In the shell holes were signs of occupation by enemy covering parties as foot prints and cylindrical sticks were found. enemy was very nervous and put up many flares and fired twice on our patrol.

Seeing that the enemy would not come out and the wire was too thick to enter is trench our patrol came in.


H.D. Dunnett. Lieut.
