From the front inside fly leaf: This book is the official war diary of the 2nd Battalion, the Bedfordshire Regiment....

A War Diary was kept by each unit while on active service during World War I. Written by the adjutant, it was intended to be a record of the unit's activities - often terse, sometimes descriptive, the diary records troop movements to and from billets and trenches, weather conditions, the 1914 Christmas Day truce, shelling, attacks, battles and casualties. The 2nd Bedfords took part in the First Battle of Ypres, Festuberts and Loos, and the Somme and Passchendaele. After a mauling during the German offensive of 1918, they ended the war with a successful career in 18th Division during the final British offensive from August to November 1918.
