The recently recaptured town of Damery served as an operations hub for assaults on the villages of La Chavatte & Fresnoy. General Arthur Currie ordered elements of the 1st Canadian Division to occupy Fransart – a small town located just north of La Chavatte. The 13th “Royal Highlanders” Battalion made 3 separate attempts to capture La Chavatte, but 8 continuous days of fighting had taken their toll on the Corps.
