The 1st Bedfords at Montgard Mill

The church in Sermoise

Wednesday 16th September 1914: Today the 1st Bedfords have been resting in and around the mill at Montgard near Jury. Our contact writes: “The owner of the mill is a most objectionable old man with his wife and family and will not do anything much to help us and anything that we want to buy we are told that he either has not got it or that he wants an impossible price for it. However we managed to get some very good honey out of him at a fairly reasonable price”. The battalion can see the village of Sermoise on the south bank of the Aisne, just across from Missy, is on fire.
