Previous WW1 Groups Index Next

Place: Sherwood Foresters (Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire Regiment) Army Training Camp
Property / Street / Road: -
Date: 1914 - 1915
Description/Historical Information: A large group of clean soldiers standing beside a horse and cart. They have towels around their necks and shirts tucked back, so have just come from having a good wash. The long shadows suggests this was either starting the day clean or smartening up after a day of exercises and trench digging. One soldier is holding a bowl and another two smaller vessels, possibly shaving mugs. To the right of the horse are a large number of covered containers (presumably used for hot water) and behind them is possibly a boiler.
