Wednesday 15th November 1916: A meeting of the Territorial Comforts Fund at Bedford yesterday heard that the Luton News and Saturday Telegraph have been raising funds to supply Christmas puddings for the troops. They expect to be able to provide at least £250, and are intending to provide puddings not just for the Bedfordshire Yeomanry and the Territorial units, but for the all the Bedfordshire Battalions on active service. The Lord Lieutenant said he was gratified that Luton was doing so well.
