Bulgarians drive Faughs* off 'Rocky Peak', the Balkans.

Event
Tuesday, 7 December, 1915

Having been driven off by a bayonet charge the night before, the Bulgarians again crept up the slopes of Rocky Peak in the thick mist on the morning of 7 December. When they charged, a savage bayonet fight ensued. Although the 5th Faughs had reinforced Rocky Peak with a half company the night before, the enemy numbers were now too great and the defenders were slowly driven from the hill.

Shortly afterwards, as the British line on the left was also broken, the 10th (Irish) Division began to withdraw to another defensive line on high ground.
