The 5th Bedford (Territorial) Regiment was largely recruited in the Bedfordshire town of Luton, then best known for its hat-making industry – with other companies coming from the towns of Ampthill, Toddington and Bedford itself. This slim volume, published in 1917 when the war was still in progress, is a memorial testomonial describes the regiment’s proud part in the Gallipoli campaign, in which it took part in some of the fiercest fighting in August and Septmber 1915. There are photos and addresses and brief details of the seven officers and sixty NCOs and men killed or died of wounds – many others being wounded or stricken with dysentery.
