Back to Egypt

Thursday 27th June 1918

The brief message received yesterday that 1st/5th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment had taken a train to Lod did not say, but a fuller report received today tells us that they are, in fact, on their way back to Egypt and expect to arrive in Alexandria today. We understand they are to undergo training prior to the expected offensive against the Turks later this year(1)
