208 casualties from 350 men including 8 officers from a total of 13.
Precis from Sheppard’s account:
For the next tour, which was due to begin on the night of May 23rd, the regiment (9th Queen’s Royal Lancers), which could now put 350 rifles in the line, was reinforced by remnants of other units, about 520 men of the 4th Green Howards and 5th Durham Light Infantry of the 50th Division, which had temporarily been broken up. It took over five hundred yards of the 9th Infantry brigade sector astride the Menin Road south-eastwards from Hooge; “B” Sqn (Capt Francis Grenfell VC), with 300 infantry, held the left portion, actually astride the road; “A” Sqn (Capt A.N. Edwards), with 150 of the infantry, the right portion, which included a sort of blind–alley sap running forward almost to the enemy lines; “C” Sqn (Capt R.L. Benson) was in the support line.
Here on 24th May, Whit Monday and Empire Day, the regiment underwent its greatest day of glory and sorrow of the whole war.
