Where there’s muck ….

In this day and age this may seem a more unusual aspect of having troops stationed in your town than it would have done in 1915 as the Great War continued, but the following notice appeared that year in the 7 May edition of the Bedfordshire Times and Independent after the arrival of Welsh troops with their horses:

“Purchase of Manure

Applications for tenders and information in regard to the removal and purchase of Manure should be made to the Officer Commanding, Army Service Corps, 1/1st Welsh Division, T.F., Murketts Garage, High Street, Bedford.”
