Are you aware that the war diary for the Battalion as part of 15 Inf Bgd 5 Div (from Aug 1914 to Dec1915) and as part of 118 Bgd 39 Div (from Mar 1916 to May 1918) are available to download here http://1914-1918.inv...st&f=2&t=176941
Apologies if you already have this but, if you don't, then it's your next port of call.

Just by the by, Kevin. His medal index card records him as "died of wounds", rather than "killed in action". That would certianly tie in with his burial at Lijssenthoek.
Look at the appendix in the battalion history for the contribution by Sgt Boardman - he notes 2 killed, 10 wounded on the 10th.
