  • 100 Years Ago - "Bedfordshire Regiment Losses Since July 1915" "Saturday 25th March 1916: readers will remember that the three service battalions of the Bedfordshire Regiment (6th, 7th and 8th) have reported the numbers of men killed or died of wounds so far in their time in France as: 14 for 6th Battalion; 35 for 7th Battalion and 78 for 8th Battalion." "The 1st Battalion has lost a comparable number of comrades – 53. They have not been involved in any major battles. The remaining two Battalions have lost, sadly, many more. The adjutant of 1st/5th Battalion, which lost significantly in Gallipoli reports fatalities as 95. The 2nd Battalion, which was heavily engaged at Loos is the unlucky “winner” of this grisly contest having lost 136." http://bedsatwar.blogspot.co.uk/ Posted on 25/03/2016. Served to 15 unique users.
