The Official Magazine of the 4th Bedfordshire Regiment

Lieutenant T J Pemberton

Wednesday 19th April 1916: We received from the Committee the April number of The Hart the official magazine of the 4th Bedfordshire Regiment(1) and we congratulate editor Corporal J F Watt on the issue for it abounds with interesting matter. The Hart is issued with the object of raising funds for the benefit of prisoners of war and widows and orphans of the Bedfordshire Regiment. Sold at 2d monthly it can be obtained post-free of “The Hart”, 4th Beds, Felixstowe at 1/9 per quarter. The April number contains a fine cartoon “How Kulture Came to Us” by John Hassall, an excellent photo of the members of the 4th Beds Officers Mess and an interesting article on “the stone walls of England” by Lieutenant T J Pemberton(2)
