Fine Weather

Saturday 25th November 1916 From our Correspondent in the Field

The 1st Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment is in the front line near Festubert. Readers will recall that the final weeks of the Battle of the Somme were bogged down, quite literally, in mud and bad weather. In contrast the adjutant of the 1st Bedfords told me today that their trenches have been much improved by fine weather as well as work done on them.
