The Wrong Magazine

Sunday 2nd April 1916: The Hart is the news magazine of the 4th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment. The unit is the old Hertfordshire Militia hence the name of its paper. They are currently at Landguard Camp near Felixstowe where the 3rd Battalion (the old Bedfordshire Militia) have been for some time.

On arrival at Landguard, says the editor of The Hart, they knocked at a door of a house in Windsor Terrace and said they wanted an office “for our Magazine”. “Oh dear” was the excited reply of the good dame, “Oh dear, Oh lor’ – I couldn’t have any explosives in my house!”
