On Saturday, 30 March, further retirement was forced and 20th Division established a new line on the Démuin – Moreuil road with 60th Brigade to the right, 59th in the centre and 61st to the left. After a quiet night, the Durhams (with 60th Brigade) were alerted that the Germans were in Moreuil Wood and shifted their formation to create a defensive line in that direction. The situation remained precarious, men being seen retiring to their left and the French pulling back on their right. Continuous attacks were held up throughout the day, but at 4 pm the thin defences of the 60th Brigade were penetrated. A cavalry attack with artillery support succesfully recovered the position.
Two DLI men were killed (Tom Evans buried at Fouqeuscourt and John Willingham buried at Hangard), while Lance Sergeant W. Johnston died of wounds at a rear dressing station and is buried at Namps-au-val.
