Have you got Charles Messenger's "Terriers in the trenches"? The Menin Rd. fighting is dealt with in pages 85 to 91, with a photo of Sgt. Knight and a brief account of the deed for which he won the VC.

Sorry I forgot to give you full details:

Terriers in the Trenches

The Post Office Rifles at War 1914-1918

By Charles Messenger

Picton Publishing.

Chippenham Wiltshire, 1982

170 pages.

It contains a Roll of Honour and a list of Decoratios and awards. Looks like a good read if you're interested in the PORs
