Dorsets in Action

Dorset Regiment cap badge 

Wednesday 8th December 1915: The adjutant of the 1st Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment reports that at two o’clock this morning bombing parties from the 1st Battalion, Dorset Regiment, in the same brigade as the Bedfords and on their flank in the front line, crept towards German trenches in a raid. However, they found the barbed wire too thick to get through so they contended themselves with throwing some bombs and scampering back again with a few slight casualties.
