Description:These young recruits have occupied Hut 27 on Battalion Line "L" which may have been occupied previously by some of the veterans of the Battle of the Somme or have named it in their honour. They were not able to serve abroad officially until they reached the age of 19 but prior to this many young men deceived the recruiting Sergeants and served at the Western Front.
