On 5th November with the capture of Berlaimont the division advanced a further two days before being relieved in the line at Eclaibes. It was to be the last active service for the division in the war. In December they moved back to the Somme. Here they conducted some training and also enjoyed rest and education. In January 1919 they began a week by week draft of men returning home.
The division had lost 55,581 killed, wounded and missing. They gained a reputation of one of the finest divisions of the BEF and had seen action in almost all the main battles of the war on the Western Front.
