Place: Sherwood Foresters (Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire Regiment) Army Training Camp
Property / Street / Road: -
Date: 1914 - 1915
Description/Historical Information: Twelve men and boys are facing the camera. Two of them look incredibly young. The armfuls of blankets on the right have clearly been aired or they may have been dried. Two soldiers are carrying a lidded pot similar to those seen close to the square boiler (VLA4886). One of the holders has a towel over his shoulder, suggesting the pot was used to provide hot water for washing purposes.
