The adjutant of the 2nd Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment, was speaking to your correspondent a few moments ago. They will shortly be on their way up to the front line west of Albert to relieve the 7th Battalion, the Buffs and a company of 7th Battalion, the Queen's. Captain Leslie Keep has been promoted to the rank of Major as has Captain H C Browning. Both men were "originals" with 7th Battalion, who arrived in France with the battalion nearly three years ago.
