The End or Not?

Thursday 25th July 1918

Over the last two days the training cadre which is all that remains of 7th Battalion, Bedfordshire has received contradictory orders. They are at Abancourt fifteen miles or so south-east of Dieppe. Yesterday they heard that they were finally to be disbanded and all personnel sent to base. This morning the order was countermanded and they were instructed to remain where they are. The adjutant remarked that it was all rather frustrating and that he, personally, wanted disbandment as soon as possible so he could have "another crack at the Bosche".
