Farewell Moonrakers

Saturday 11th May 1918

After all the strife and hardship of the last two months the 2nd Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment is resting behind the lines at Buysscheure between Ardres and Cassel. They said goodbye to the men of the 2nd Battalion, Wiltshire Regiment with whom they have formed a composite battalion, as, being at rest, there is no need to swell numbers. The adjutant expressed the hope that before being sent into action again the battalion will receive significant reinforcements and added that the adjutant of the Moonrakers had expressed the same opinion of the Wiltshire battalion.
