Edit-  3rd day of our Artillery bombardment.

.... The enemy artillery retaliated on our trenches at intervals during the day causing several casualties.......other ranks 2 killed and 13 wounded.

I've checked and works for me. You can download the whole diary from NA (currently for free) using jrmh's link above.

 

 

edit- This, courtesy Grave Registration Report of the CWGC, is probably the '2 killed'
