Cross placed by members of 1st Arlesey Scouts, who have since been renamed "1st Arlesey Scouts 'The Yellow Devils', after the 5th Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment.
They picked up the names during their assault against the Kiretch Tepe Sirt on 15th August 1915 an observing Staff Officer observed their progress through his binoculars and saw the battalion’s metal flashes glinting yellow in the sun as they advanced. He remarked, “By Jove! If only we had one or two more battalions of those yellow devils we should be across the peninsular by tomorrow”. With that the battalion’s nickname – The Yellow Devils – was born.
