Bedfordshire Becomes Hertfordshire

Monday 20th May 1918

This evening the officers of the 6th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment are to have a farewell dinner. No speeches are planned. Tomorrow a proportion of the officers and most of the men will travel to be absorbed by 1st/1st Battalion, Hertfordshire Regiment whilst a few officers and men will form a small cadre, still known as 6th Bedfords, to train American units new to France
