From a Google search found on King's Shropshire Light Infantry Battlefields Facebook page:

 

The 8th Battalion King's Shropshire Light Infantry- Captured Bulgarian front lines west of Lake Doiran on Pip Ridge, Greece:-

The Bulgarian try to regain a position on the Memelon but they were repulsed, losing heavily, only few of their men reached the K.S.L.I. position.

Casualties for the 24th-25th were one officer killed, four wounded, 12 other ranks killed, 2 missing and 111 wounded.

8th KSLI were taking part in the 1st Battle of Doiran which ultimately ended in failure. Details can be found in 'Under the Devils Eye' by Wakefield and Moody.
