They were engaged in the 1916 Battle of the Somme, in the second Battle of Arras in 1917 and in 1918 defended bravely in the battles of the first German Spring Offensive of March 1918. After resting from these efforts they returned to the Somme sector in July by occupying the trenches in front of Auchonvillers. Though usually quiet there was always the occasional shelling or raid and Private Isaac Tromans was killed in action on the 9th July.
