Russians Spotted

Monday 26th February 1917 from our correspondent in the field

The 1st Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment is in billets at le Touret, east of Béthune. The adjutant tells us that a mission of senior Russian officers passed the billets and called in at the officers’ mess.

The extent of the German retreat is still unclear. The army has been feeling forward for them all day across a broad front.
