2nd Bedfords in the Front Line Again

Sunday 5th May 1918

The Composite Battalion containing the 2nd Battalions, Bedfordshire and Wiltshire Regiments, after the shortest of rests, is once more in the front line. They are holding the section shown in the map above in the square numbered 10 just west of Vierstraat. They have relieved the South African composite brigade of 9th (Scottish) Division. 

Number 2 (Bedfordshire) Company is on the right (facing south) and Number 4 (Wiltshire) Company is on the left (facing east) with Number 1 (Bedfordshire) Company in reserve and Number 3 (Wiltshire) Company in immediate support.
