At 7.20 A.M. the mine under Hawthorn Redoubt was blown, the heavy barrage lifted, and the Stokes mortars in the advanced emplacements, and four in the sunken lane in No Man's Land, to which two companies of the 1/Lancashire Fusiliers pushed forward, opened a hurricane fire on the German front trench, if any were needed, that the assault was about to take place. Under cover of this fire, the leading companies of the assaulting infantry began to leave their trenches and form up in No Man's Land. Two platoons of the 2/Royal Fusiliers, with four machine guns and four Stokes mortars, rushed forward to occupy the mine crater. They reached the near lip, not without a number of casualties, and at once came under heavy machine-gun and rifle fire from the German trenches on either flank and from the far lip of the crater, which the Germans had immediately occupied.
The explosion of the mine ten minutes before the assault undoubtedly prejudiced the chances of success, as it warned the Germans to be on the alert. It immediately brought down the enemy barrage, and within five minutes it seemed that every machine gun along the front was shooting incessantly. The divisions were caught forming up. Even before the heavy barrage lifted at 7.20 A.M., the Germans appeared in the front line; and after that hour, with hardly a British shell or bullet striking the parapets, most of them fired standing in the remains of the trenches. Others sprang out to the front, some into shell holes, rifles and machine guns in hand. They received the British infantry lines with very heavy fire directly these tried to advance across No Man's Land to their assault position one hundred yards from the German front line; whilst the party on the far lip of the mine crater, armed with machine guns and light trench mortars, simply shot right and left as it pleased.

Raymond Norrington, according to The Suttonian, " is said to have been with some of his company, on the morning of the attack of August 16th last (1917), in a tunnel dug-out beneath the Menin Road. A heavy calibre shell landed on the top, smashing the place in completely. Most of the bodies were got out, but not all, owing to the situation of the place, and the fact that the other companies of the battalion had to move forward in support of the attack ".
PTE. RAYMOND NORRINGTON
There is great anxiety as to what has befallen Pte. Raymond Norrington (Queen's Westminsters), son of Mr. E. Norrington, butcher, High-street, in consequence of the information contained in a letter sent to his parents by the Quartermaster-Sergeant of his Company, who, writing, says:--"I am taking the first opportunity to write to you concerning your son, who is reported missing during the last action on the 16th. The situation was very much confused owing to the very heavy shell fire. It appears from conversations with some of your son's comrades that he was badly wounded by a shell and was then assisted away, or that he was unfortunately killed when the Company next advanced. There is no one now in the Company who has seen him during the advance. They are all casualties. I have made very careful enquires, but cannot get any further information than that he was alive when his platoon advanced. There is, of course, a hope--a faint one--that he was carried off the field by some other regiment. Of course information of that nature takes some time to get through, especially when there is heavy fighting. I am more than sorry at the sad news. I knew your son very well, and also knew what a good type of boy and soldier he was, one of the best in the Company, and all the Company, including the N.C.O.'s were his friends. Such personal effects as he had left behind in his pack I have sent to you through the official channels. In conclusion, I wish to offer you my own sympathy and that of the Company as well. We have lost a good comrade, and you have lost a worthy and brave son. Should any further news come to hand, be assured I will acquaint you". Everyone who knows this popular young soldier is hoping that news will be received to remove the worst fears that can be entertained as to his fate. The letter may preclude any sanguine hopes, but it does not shut out all possibility of Pte. Norrington being still alive.
Son of Edward and Edith Norrington, of 11, Hyland's Road, Epsom.
RAYMOND NORRINGTON, was killed in action at Hooge in Belgium on the 16th August 1917.
