His wounding is recorded in the 116th Brigade diary on the 9th June 16 with the entry "One of our patrols encountered enemy patrol in No Mans Land and enemy were driven back to their trenches by our bombers".  Bit odd that his own 11th Battalion diary doesn't mention it and doesn't list him among the June wounded, it happens though.

The name on the flask has seven digits and I read it as Keliher.
