During the summer of 1915, the 1st battalion remained in one sector or another of the trench-line between Neuve Chapelle and Armentieres. During the hot weather, “no man’s land” became luxuriant with rank grass and flowers which gave good cover to the movement of patrols and resulted in many skirmishes. During one such fight between patrols on July 8th, 2nd Lieutenant A.A.D. Baird was killed. He was a very popular young officer, son of Colonel A. Baird, R.A.M.C., for many years Medical Officer to the Depot at Norton Barracks.
