Tuesday 19th March 1918

Yesterday 1st/5th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment at Mejdel Yaba had a number of guests. The Battalion has listening posts in advance of the front line and two Turkish soldiers approached rather too close to one of these. When they were fired on, the two gave themselves up. Also during the day two Arabs were found straying close to the lines and were also captured. All four men have been sent to Brigade Headquarters.
