An eye-witness account of Corporal Austwaite S.J. , 14th Bn. Australian Infantry :
' We were on fatigue working building support line trenches at Estmare trench near Spoil Bank. I was in the next bay to him when he was killed outright by a piece of shell , hit in the head. I saw him lying in the trench. His body was not taken out by us. The pioneers were to go up and bury him and any others that may have been killed.'
