On the 4th June 1918 the Battalion was situated in Beaumont Trench near the village of Beaumont Hamel in the Somme sector of the Western Front. At 2.30am the Battalion positions were subjected to a heavy artillery barrage, under the cover of which the Germans launched a Trench Raid. Three Raiding Parties, containing approximately 40 men, attacked the British positions and initially overwhelmed one part of the trench. However, after a fierce fight they were eventually driven off leaving the Battalion with 13 Killed, 15 Missing and 21 Wounded including Charles Day. He died later that morning as a result of his injuries and is buried in the Acheux War Cemetery, France.
