In 1917 they fought in the Third Battle of Ypres, reinforcing the front line near the Steenbeek in August. They were involved in a major attack on the 26th and then the weather turned to rain and the trenches to mud. Enemy shelling, however, remained intensive and on the 10th September Private Thomas Millward was killed in action, probably as a result of shelling. He is buried in Wieltje Farm Cemetery (C 3) and is commemorated on the Lye and Wollescote and Lye church memorials.
