A Warm Welcome

Wednesday 3rd July 1918

Today 1st Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment, in the front line at le Sart, just west of Merville received a visit from two of the Top Brass, as the adjutant described them - the brigadier of 15th Brigade and the commander of 5th Division, Sir Reginald B Stephens. These persons were also given a warm welcome by the enemy - with trench mortars. One other rank was killed and four were wounded.
