I'm not aware of any books about the 1/9th. There will be mention of them, though, in 42nd Division history

The 1/7th, which was in the same Division, was around the Menin Road on the date you mention. It seems to have been a quiet time for them. Sorry not to be more helpful - is there something specific you're trying to track down?
