Description:This is Hollywood Slade coming down from the top of the Camp near Brocton Coppice. On the right hand side are "F" and "G" Lines. Two flag poles can be seen, one of which was by the Regimental Institute of "F" Lines.

On the left hand side is the light sandy earth disturbed by the laying the newly constructed embankments to support the Military Railway coming up from Milford and skirting the side of the valley. The pathways off the Chase must have been constantly occupied by troops on leave, walking down to the local villages and towns to enjoy the pubs, cafe and cinemas.
