Three soldiers of 10 EYR ( Privates W Crispin/C Dawson/CN Kelly) killed on that day and buried in Le Grande Hasard Mil Cem at MORBECQUE ( 3 kms NW of Hazebrouck),so likely in that vicinity as it was a cemetery started by their Division (31) in 1918. No apparent link to a set battle at that time,so you may need to see the unit War Diary:

The battalion moved back into trenches in Nieppe Forest - HQ noted as being in 'B' Ride, on 26th July 1918. Battalion patrols were active around this time with a raid made on an enemy post between Cornet Perdu and Plate Becque. It is also noted that the Germans were heaviy shelling the trenches with gas upto the battalion being relieved on the 3rd August.

The above snippets are taken from Biltons' 'The Trench'

Hi,

They where in the front line map ref 36A. K. a., about 10 Kilometers east of MORBECQUE, A and B Coys in the front line C and D Coy in reserve, War Diary has nothing to report 31st July or 1st August, two men died on the 1st August 1918.

A tip - it is best to make your own thread about your subject as adding it to another might mean that no one sees it,as you will note it has been more than a day to get an answer,this is NOT normal here !
