Another great purchase……..

Hunmanby August 1914

Pictures of the very short Summer Camp of 1914 in Hunmanby are hard to find and this is only my second……….

The reason being – War was declared and the men of the Sherwood Foresters quickly returned to their home station for mobilisation.

This is epitomised by the entry in Sergeant Percy Walker’s diary…

The picture shows men of the 5th or 6th Battalions cooking by the roadside…

Is this T5 or T6……
I’m calling this as T5
Great shot!

And just for comparison – here is the Robin Hood Rifles…..same photographer……just taken later
