FROM A NEWSPAPER CUTTING OF THE TIME

On 15 August 1917 B/103 was attached, with other 23 Div arty, to XVIII Corps as a reserve. XVIII Corps was involved in the battle of Langemarck between 16 to 18 August and B/103 played a part in the aftermath.

Bert was sick and in the medical system for all of September so he missed the Battle of Menin Road, returning to action on 2 October in the Zillebeke area again. B/103 was withdrawn to rest on 24 October and, with the rest of the Division, was transferred to Italy on 9 November 1917.
