1st Bedfords in France

Sunday 16th August 1914: The 1st Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment landed safely at Le Havre this morning. They marched straight to a rest camp on top of a hill overlooking the town in order to recover from the journey. Speaking with one of the junior officers by telephone he told us that they had exchanged water for mud but at least mud does not go up and down and cause nausea.  They are stout fellows.
