      The battalion was in action on the 24th in the area of Wasmes. The came under heavy shellfire and hand-to-hand fighting took place when the battalion became almost completely surrounded. Brigadier-General C. D. Bruce, CBE recalls in his war history of the regiment a number of first-hand accounts from those present at Wasmes:

      I saw the Germans charge the platoon, who fought to the last with the bayonet, and were all either killed or wounded. The Germans were piled up in heaps all around them. All our officers were either killed or wounded....... Sgt. Spence ordered us to fix bayonets and to cut our way back. (Cpl. J. G. Williams.)

      Casualties: Maj. P. B. Strafford, Capt. C. O. Denman-Jubb, Lt. L. E. Russell killed, Lt. J. H. L. Thompson mortally wounded, 3 other officers wounded, 2 missing, 37 other ranks killed, 35 wounded, 244 missing. Survivors withdrew via Bavai.
