1st Bedfords Nearing the Front

Tuesday 18th August 1914: The 1st Bedfords will soon reach Le Pommereuil. They left Le Havre about six o’clock this morning and their train reached Le Cateau at ten this evening where our friendly officer rang us to tell us the news. They are about to march off to Le Pommereuil, which is a few miles east of Le Cateau and not far from the Belgian border. They should reach their destination about midnight.
