Description:"K", "L" and "M" Lines on the eastern slope of Old Acre Valley. There are a number of tents erected so it may have been early on in the development of Brocton Camp. Most of these postcards tended to have a person in the foreground of the photograph which would have helped with appreciating the scale of the Camp. The lighter coloured huts in the front are Officers' huts which were longer than the standard huts and which allowed them to be divided into approximately 18 individual rooms.
