Between 24th and 27th April 1915, 4th Royal Fusiliers part of 9 Brigade, 3rd Division were holding the lie at St. Eloi, just to the south of Ypres. The battalion diary reports heavy firing gooing on further north but that for 4th Royal Fusiliers it was a 'quiet' day. Not quiet enough however for Private Benn who was killed on 26th April, probably from shell fire.
