Discharge of Bedfordshire Yeomen

Bedfordshire Yeomanry [X344/163]

Tuesday 17th November 1914: Comment has been made in Bedford and is being made, we note, in Luton on the recent discharge of about sixty yeomen who had volunteered for foreign service. It is suggested that the reason for this is that the authorities considered the men not old enough for foreign service; for one hundred more men are now wanted for the Yeomanry and all of them must not only be able to ride and shoot, and be ready for foreign service, but must be over twenty years of age.
