He also actively used bombs in the survival of his detachment at Triangle Point Montauban “Major Macdonald recorded “ At 3.15am on 2 July the detached post in Montauban Alley near Triangle Point was attacked and bombed out. They held out until their supply of bombs was exhausted, and then endeavoured to retire.” Arthur probably also used his bomber training at Guillemont.
