It's been intense with Germans conducting the game 5-4, but an English rush to the central hill (Temporary Victory Banner) and some lucky rolls made the difference.
Final result: 6-5 for the British side.

I saw them tie a soldier to a cartwheel with his arms outstretched as a punishment. I also knew of men who did themselves in. British soldiers weary of sitting in the trenches who cut their throats during leave. If order hadn't been maintained, they would have deserted. They were coerced. When you're in the army, you can't just do whatever you want. ~~~ Gaston Boudry, in the Belgian book 'Van den Grooten Oorlog' ~~~
