Day One Hundred and Thirty Two on the Somme

Thursday 9th November 1916 From our Correspondent in the Field

Thje adjutant of the 4th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment, which is at Puchevillers told me that they have been on parade today. They were inspected by their brigade commander – Brigadier-General W C G Heneker DSO. He addressed them in words calculated to lift their martial spirits – so they know they will be going into action soon.
