The Regimental History records: ‘A similar sort of raid, but with artillery support, was made on the 3rd May by A Company. Ambrosini was again the point chosen . No Man’s Land was fairly wide, and unfortunately, while getting to their selected jumping off spot , the company was seen by the enemy, who opened heavy rifle and machine - gun fire. It was not yet Zero hour. The company was suffering casualties - the situation was distinctly unpleasant. One reads the cold, unadorned entry in the Brigade Diary with gratification : As it was not yet Zero time they charged, and the enemy retired. The soldierly spirit and bearing of the 1st Battalion were remarkable.’ (Regimental Records of the Royal Welch Fusiliers, by Major C. H. Dudley Ward, D.S.O., M.C. Vol. IV, 1915 - 1918 refers).
