Training Americans

Saturday 18th May 1918

A few days ago we heard that 6th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment, was to be disbanded and the personnel transferred to 1st/1st Battalion, Hertfordshire Regiment. Now it seems a small number of men is to be kept on forming what is called, in military parlance, a cadre. This cadre will be training one of the American battalions newly arrived in France.
