Day 3

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

Today the weather was much better, we have closed down trenches 1 and 2 as we have been unable to locate any sign of the training trenches dug by the 18th Battalion Durham light Infantry. In the woods, progress has been much better, with the team in trench 3 locating the door which is shown in several of the DLI collection photographs. Trench 4 have located the extent of the yard and traces of the wine cellar. We are also beginning to investigate the rear wing of the house and plot the traces of the hut bases.
