Peronne Falls

Monday 2nd September 1918

More advances have taken place today. Most importantly, perhaps, the Australian Corps has taken the town of Peronne. 5th Division has been one of the attacking formations. 1st Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment, forms part of 15th Brigade in this division and acted as reserve for this attack east of Fremicourt. Nevertheless, it suffered ninety-four casualties, killed and wounded.
