Place: Buxton
Property / Street / Road: The Empire Hotel
Date: 2 Nov 1914 - 3 Feb 1915
Description/Historical Information: 2/6th Sherwood Foresters (Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire Regiment). The identity of this soldier is not yet known. The rifle he is holding is a Magazine Lee Enfield (MLE).
It snowed twice whilst the Regiment was at Buxton, near the end of November and towards the end of December. The severe weather and snow at the end of December 1914 made outdoor training exercises very difficult (WO 95/3025/3, Battalion's War Diary, 1914 - 1916, TNA: noted in Dec 1914).
