This is from the HQ Diary of the 51st (Highland) Division concerning the attack on High Wood on the evening of 30th July 1916.

It refers to a section that is underlined in red which says " at least on Officer and several men were killed actually on the wire. " beside it is this note; I think it says

" First we've heard ???? here. Why was this ???? never reported! "

Who might have written this, and what difference would the fact that men had been shot on the wire actually have made?

'first we've heard of wire here' That's it Garth

Thank you . If I had looked a couple of pages ahead, the answer is there. Still not sure who wrote it.

It may have been written by the commander of XVth Corps, whoever he was. He obviously was not impressed that patrols had not found and reported this wire.
