Saturday September 16, 1916

The great drive still continues and the 26th has covered itself in glory. The boys of the battalion got 80 prisoners by a smart trick. Thet had bombed out a party of Germans and occupied their trench. Just then a relieving party of Germans came up to re-inforce. Our lads melted away on either side and closed in behind them taking the party prisoners. The news comes in so thick and fast that it is hard to keep calm amid it all.
