Changes in Command

Major Wynne [X550/1/81]

Thursday 28th February 1918

2nd Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment are still in the front line near Saint-Quentin. Their commanding officer is away in temporary command of their brigade so their new temporary commander is Major Reggie Wynne.

Captain Kingdon [X550/1/82]

7th Battalion, similarly, has a new temporary commander and for the same reason. Lieutenant-Colonel Arthur Percival is acting as temporary commander of 54th Brigade and Captain Oliver Kingdon has taken over command of the Battalion as they move to Rouez, close to the front line and not far from the 2nd Battalion.
