  • 2nd KOYLI[2] commences to relieve Lonsdales at 9:30pm; relief completes at 12:40am on 27 June.[1]
  • "Relieved to-night by K.O.Y.L.I. Continuous bombardment by both sides. We go out for a day or two’s rest preparation, into a lot of dug-outs under a big bank close behind. The locum tenens doctor is astonished at the efficiency of our stretcher-bearers, who, he says, are as capable as they are devoted; say he never has to undo anything. We certainly owe a great deal to S__ and to Kirkwood. Quite a few casualties to-day, very strenuous." – Lt-Col. P. W. Machell [3]
