Date:1917 - 1918 (c.)

Description:Two soldiers from a Scottish Regiment, one in a kilt, the other in plaid trousers stride across Old Acre Valley with "O" lines behind them and the ever present Water Tower. The long building on the far right was a Horse Shelter but appears to have been adapted for vehicles. They are striding across the heather toward "S" Lines with what appears to be a telephone pole beside them. The majority of the paths and tracks that were created for the Camp can still be walked today but nature has reduced them in size as the vegetation has spread.
