A New Commanding Officer

Sunday 1st April 1917 from our correspondent in the field

The adjutant of the 1st Battalion has been in touch to say that the Battalion has a new commanding officer. He is Lieutenant-Colonel P R Worrall MC, formerly of the Devonshire Regiment. The battalion is in billets at Allouagne, well behind the front lines west of Béthune. They are heavily involved in training for the new offensive which everyone expects to begin soon, now that warmer, drier weather is here.
