26 August - 3 September 1918. In a replica of the experience on the Somme which was happening concurrently a few miles further south, the old battlefields around Arras, so bitterly fought over in 1917 were taken and the Germans challenged on the Hindenburg Line. The Drocourt-Queant sector, which had proven such an obstacle in previous years was taken by the 3rd September and with the Hindenburg line broken in the sector the advance was again possible.

Listed in as John William Robinson, a 31 year old Sergeant resident at Aldershot at the time of his initiation in 1910. Being a military man already not all of his war service is recorded in the contribution register, because he paid his dues up to 1918, after which he is shown "Died of Wounds Aug/18." By the time of his death he at least reached the rank of Regimental Sergeant Major, as recorded in the 1921 Book.
