Thursday 23rd March 1916: The figures quoted in the last few days for losses incurred by the 6th and 8th Battalions have made us wonder about other battalions of the Regiment. Upon making enquiries we have learned that 35 men of the 7th Battalion have lost their lives since arriving in France last July. The Bedfordshire Yeomanry have lost six up to this point. The 1st, 2nd and 1st/5th Battalions, of course, have seen hard fighting and it will take some time to assess their casualties in the same period.
