Highlanders: Billeted in Bedford

Connections Gallery - Entry Free

Saturday 27th September 2014 - Sunday 31st May 2015


Between August 1914 and May 1915 up to 22,000 soldiers of the Highland Division were billeted in Bedford before joining the fight on the Western Front in France. This exhibition explored the little known story of these Scottish troops who became a familiar sight in the town and surrounding countryside as they trained and prepared for the war.
