    “Driver A. Arnold of 11th Batty (previously with L.H) was killed on the Corduroy Track going to Westlock Ridge while on a 8 horse team. The lead driver “Hobby” Henderson and another driver were also killed outright by two shells which also killed the team and I hear a fourth driver died of wounds … (Robinson, Dr. G. 11th Batty.)
