Description:During the First World War two military camps were built on the Chase - Brocton Camp, which was located near to Anson's Bank, and Rugeley Camp which extended along Penkridge Bank. The two camps were separated by the Sherbrook Valley. The Chase had been used as a military training ground since the 1870s.

In this postcard view of (Chase View now the Chase Inn) on the outskirts of Rugeley, soldiers are pictured walking towards the town from the camp at Penkridge Bank.
