Previous WW1 Groups Index Next

Place: Buxton
Property / Street / Road: The Empire Hotel
Date: 2 Nov 1914 - 3 Feb 1915
Description/Historical Information: Men standing in front of garage doors holding assorted food, including raw meat/bacon, bread, butter and big jars of preserves. Behind them is a dining area (the Mess), with laid trestle tables.
The large garage in the Hotel's grounds, where the Mess was, had a concrete floor. There was a plentiful water supply from the standpipes, so the whole place was swilled and scrubbed each day (WO 95/3025/3, Regimental War Diary, 1914 - 1916, TNA: section written Nov 1914).
