Sergt. Chesterfield.

. Pet. Standard 29/8/1914  The County Cyclist Battalion.  A member of the Hunts. Cyclist Battalion writes: -"Some of our party have moved into some very comfortable quarters here (Withernsea) and are doing some useful work on the coast.  With a very few exception, the entire Battalion has volunteered to undertake service abroad should it be asked of them.  Without going into details, it may be said that the Hunts. Battalion - the "baby" Regiment of the Arm - has received many congratulations on their work , and the zest they throw into it.  The following have been promoted to the rank of   Colour Sergeant, in each case a well deserved recognition of good work: A. Co. Sergt. Walton ; B. Co. Sergeant Clayton ; C. Co. Sergeant W. Dawson ; D. Co. Sergeant Taylor ; E. Co. Sergeant Hitch ; F. Co. Sergeant Chesterfield ; G. Co. Sergeant Baxter ; H. Co. Sergeant Wiles.
