Has anyone got the War Diary for 2nd Battalion, Manchester Regiment for November 1915, please?

After their 'doings' for 19 November or thereabouts.

Many thanks,

Hi

After their 'doings' of the 19th November, the 2 Manchesters were involved on the night of the 25/26th November in a combined bombing operation. Each Company in A2, A3 and A4 trench sections were went out to bomb the enemy's trenches. 2/Lt Evill, L/Cpl Keelan and 3 men went out from No.20 Fire Trench. They came across a post in No-man's Land which they bombed and returned safely despite attracting machine-gun fire. Another party from No. 26 Fire Trench (2/Lt Haigh-Wood, Cpl Herbert and 3 men) threw bombs into an enemy sap. Cpl Herbert was wounded but brought back to British lines. Casualties for November: 7 OR's killed, 2/Lt's Lewtas and Williamson and 14 OR's wounded
