A Unique Photographic Record of Matlock & District, 1910-1915, and World War One Soldiers

Previous WW1 Groups Index Next

Place: Buxton
Property / Street / Road: -
Date: 3 Feb 1915
Description/Historical Information: Group, with kit bags, lined up and ready to depart. The image is rather blurred, but it was felt that it should be included. On the right is the shadow of a soldier which can just about be seen. It is probably the shadow of Vernon Lamb. Behind the group is a building with shingles down the side and further back, almost level with the solitary man walking towards the camera, is a pub sign (unfortunately unreadable). The trees are coniferous, but as the men are in great coats, it must be winter.
It is now believed this is a group of soldiers from the Sherwood Foresters Reserve Battalion who were leaving Buxton.
