Lonsdale Battalion events that took place on 9 January.


  • General Equipment Indent: 81 Infantry whistles.[1]
  • Copy letter from Lt-Col. Machell to 124th Infantry Brigade: Recruits are now coming in well, and my experience of closing recruiting in November showed me that, once it is announced that recruiting is closed, it is by no means easy to begin again. I strongly recommend I may be authorised forthwith to proceed with the formation of the 6th (Depot) Company, for whom I can arrange billets in the neighbourhood as long as the Service Battalion remains in its present camp. [2]
  • Court of Enquiry regarding the alleged illegal absence of Isaac Parker (16286 Pte.) of C Company.[3]


  • In the F1 sector near Aveluy. Day is quiet.[4]



  • Battalion situated at Tournehem involved in defensive training and Lewis guns on range.[7]
