7th Battalion Plan an Attack

Tuesday 2nd April 1918

Today the 7th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment at Hangard had a quiet morning and then was shelled occasionally during the day. This evening the battalion is to undertake an attack in conjunction with 11th Battalion, Royal Fusiliers - the same two battalions which undertook the great attack on 1st July 1916 on the Somme. It seems so long ago
