Hello James

Q1 D9.D.1.6 (forward vicinity of Hennencourt)

Q2 doubtful but you could try looking in 1ANZAC AWM4 13/7/25 (Google it) or local Leicester newspapers; only surviving member is not supported by CWGC

Q2a No diary entry that I am aware of

Q2. There are no casualties showing by the CWGC site for that date. The nearest is Signaller Gnr. F.W. Potter on the 7th April 1918 who was actually wounded on the 27th March.
