Life Carries On

Thursday 31st January 1918

Following the announcement of the impending abolition of 8th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment, life carries on as normal. Today the battalion has been finding working parties as follows: one NCO and fifteen other ranks on Town Major’s fatigue, doing odd jobs in and around Lebucquière. Two NCOs and forty other ranks are working at the Brigade Grenade School; four officers and one hundred other ranks are working on strengthening the defences of the intermediate line; two other ranks have gone on a Third Army musketry course and one other rank is attending a pigeon course at 6th Divisional Headquarters.
