Description:In the background are "P" and "Q" Battalion Lines and to the left out of picture was the main coal yard and weighbridge. The white lines to the right of the road show the freshly dug earth covering some of the many miles of sewerage pipes laid below both Camps. The large building to the right is the YMCA, one of numerous religious buildings scattered throughout the Camp to offer comfort to the troops far from home. This bend is known nowadays as Chase Road Corner and the car park is to the left.
