|Action : Actions in Spring 1916|
Actions in Spring 1916 covers a number of non specific actions on the Western Front in the period February to the end of June 1916. Much of this period concerned the build up to the Battle of the Somme, particularly the acclimatisation of the Service Battalions (Kitchener Volunteers) to trench routine. As the Battle of the Somme occupied the plans for 1916 no significant efforts were made in other sectors. Many of the casualties could be considered 'routine'. During the period December to June 1916 5845 British soldiers died in 'minor trench operations'.
The 11th Border Regiment had its last peroid in the front line before being relieved for a few days rest before returning for the main attack on July 1st 1916. Its War Diary tell us about what should have been a mundane and routine hand over; June 24th: Battalion took over Authuille Sector from Manchester Regiment (12-30am). June 26th: ?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; says 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? Relief completed at 12-40am, 27th. During this relief the continuous bombardment resulted in 2 O.R. killed, 30 O.R. wounded, 9 shell shock. One of those killed was Sergeant Hogg (one of two masons in 11/Border killed in the run up to the Somme, the other being Sergeant STEVENS) Sergeant CT HOGG was a Past Master of UNION Lodge No. 129
